Mine, to the Blackbird

Turdus merula
Blackbird, Blackbird in the sky
why you are there I know not why
you should be found on the ground
chasing other Blackbirds around.

With your resplendent orange beak
yellow beaked Blackbirds
should shy and seek
the orange beaked Blackbird on the ground.

You meet a female who is impressed
by your guardianship and resplendent colour
to get together and make another
and another, and another.

When they come into the world
we will see them when they fledge
what a wonderful thing to see
an blackbird with an orange beak, and mate
to follow natures way.
