A POEM A DAY - BLACKBIRD


As I am stuck indoors with January breathing problems I am using a beautiful photograph taken by my brother Chris Knight. It brings back happy memories of watching the blackbirds in my family garden. In their later years of immobility my parents spent many hours in their sunny garden room, watching the birds. We had families of blackbirds all year round, defending their territory, raising young and filling the air with their song.
