Three Little Blackbirds

Three little blackbirds
Sitting on a fence..
One flew off to visit her nest.

Two little blackbirds
Sitting on a fence..
One flew off and the last was tense.

One little blackbird
sitting on a fence..
He flew off, he didn't take offense.

No little black birds 
sitting on a fence..
This silly rhyme doesn't make much sense!

But, I really enjoyed making it up after 
seeing the birds all sitting in a line on the paddock railing.
It's because of the inner child in me... 
Some days I refuse to grow up!!


  1. I remember the movie "The Birds", an Alfred Hitchcock old thing. That movie in the day scared the pants off of me. I still get a creepy feeling when I see crows. Birds of a feather flock together! Debi

  2. LOVE IT!!!!! I make up silly little songs all the time. Inner Children UNITE! =^D

  6. Cute rhyme. Cute blackbirds on your fence.

  7. Yep, we don't have to grow up!

  8. Was it The Beatles or Simon & Garfunkle that had a popular record re blackbirds? Regardless, I used the song to introduce a poetry unit during my student teaching in 1968. Yep, that is a l-o-n-g time ago; however, it was/is a great song. You should put your rhyme to music!


  9. Hey Anne, that was the Beetles, "Blackbirds singing in the Dead of Night". I agree, it is a great song!
    Debi - you are right, the movie creeps me out, and I probably haven't seen it in over 40 years!!!

  10. What a cute poem... I loved it!
    I guess some people just have that certain knack for writing. I don't happen to be one of them.


What thoughts do you have?

One, Two... Tree

We had two very sad looking Queen Palms at the back of our lot. Our neighbor told us that one had looked like it was on its last legs for se...
