The black Blackbird and the brown Blackbird

The black Blackbird and the brown Blackbird

were gathering stores for winter;

for instant consumption,

or saving for later,

they picked, and pecked,

and packed a lot of work

into the day.

.

Stopping for a drink

in the garden of one house

where there was food a-plenty,

the black Blackbird considered the weather,

and the temperature –

‘Fahrenheit, twenty!’.

And wasn’t far off.

.

The brown Blackbird was much too busy to stop

and chat about the weather;

she’d collected a lot of things so far,

so they could survive the cold together.
