Sample Excerpts


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?
