A blackbird swallowed his pride


A blackbird swallowed his pride

And sang his dawn chorus

Outside my bedroom window,

I was half awake,

But listened to his solileque

Connecting note to note,

Producing a raphsody.

He was identifying

His place,

His rights,

Their nest,

And her eggs,

Soon the chicks will come,

But for now

He sends word through his song,

-SINGING

This is our house,

Our home,

My family,

And I will defend it with my life.
