Blackbirds (merli)

I sat and watched young blackbirds play,
Upon my neighbors roof today.
It was such a fun-filled sight,
That I laughed unto my hearts delight.

Two brothers I think they must have been.
One ran ahead the other followéd,
And when he was just close enough,
His brother hopped a few feet off!

How carefree was the blackbird’s game,
And wonder why we can’t be the same!
To play and delight in harmless fun,
Playing tag upon the autumn rooves.

Complicated we would have our lives!
Full of issues that cannot be solved.
We re-create inside our minds,
Problems and drama for who knows why.

Young blackbirds can teach us a lesson,
If only we were to look at them.
Life needn’t be about deadly feuds…
We could play and then take flight!

But, you would say what of the spring?
When looking for a mate what then…
I can only tell you what I’ve seem,
Their battles are of how they sing.

I sat and watched young blackbirds play,
Upon my neighbors roof today.
It was such a fun-filled sight,
That I laughed unto my hearts delight.

in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
