On an Autumnal mellowed evening
Blackbirds vocal intermittences
smoothly pleasing the listeners ear
tenebrously feathered performer
singing late into the dreamily fading light
I can but sit and be audibly pleasured!
How unrushed and calming the sound
fitting in so well
with occasional quills of chimney smoke
lazing their ways into the stilled air.
Although an ending is at hand
it will be the ending of something quite beautiful
that I have been priviledged enough to have been part of
and hopefully will be again

There's a lot of trees around our street...and nothing more gorgeous than the song of the blackbirds singing us to our rest in the evening.

Grace, your poetry pulls me into the experience of what you are describing, so well written. I like the ending of this poem: "God willing." We don't know what is in store, but we hope for the best.

A pleasant, peaceful poem. Looks like you are quite a nature observer, Grace. I'm enjoying reading all your poems.
