About the Book:
Volume of selected poems.
Who Will Tell the Blackbirds
The early elements combined
To stunt the blossoms on the trees,
And then, in May and June the wind
And rain deterred the bees
From venturing to pollinate
The flowers that survived the cold;
The apple yield will not be great,
The public have been told.
But who will tell the blackbirds so,
That love the apple more then most,
When silenced by a fall of snow
Or circumscribed by frost?
