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?
