DAY 122 (5 AUGUST) – Common blackbird (Turdus merula) (Farnham)
“On the grass when I arrive, / Filling the stillness with life, / But ready to scare off / At the very first wrong move. / In the ivy when I leave. /
It’s you, blackbird, I love.”
Excerpt from The Blackbird of Glanmore by Seamus Heaney
One of my favourite poems.
