On The Second Week Of Summer

On the second week of Summer and December a songster of the Spring
A gold billed male blackbird in the gray dawn does sing
His kind distinctive and familiar with ways of their own
For their beautiful song are loved and widely known
Going back the decades a century or so
His ancestors brought from England a long time ago
And released in Victoria where they multiply
And extend their range as the Springs go by
Seen in gardens and city parks and parks of the town
For their beautiful songs they are in bird renown
The brown mottled female is one without a song
But the male from once heard one could never again get wrong
On a December morning in the dawning gray
A male blackbird is singing for to greet the new day.
