redwinged blackbird quotes

It was evening all afternoon.
It was snowing
And it was going to snow.
The blackbird sat
In the cedar limbs.
But I know, too,
That the blackbird is involved
In what I know.
Among twenty snowy mountains
The only moving thing
Was the eye of the blackbird.
Morning has broken like the first morning,
blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
In spring more mortal singers than belong
To any one place cover us with song.
Where the blackbird sings the latest,
Where the hawthorn blooms the sweetest,
A feme may come, leaf-green,
Whose coming may give revel
The ousel cock so black of hue,
With orange-tawny bill,
I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflexions
Or the beauty of innuendos,
His bill's so yellow,
his coat's so black,
that he makes a fellow
whistle back.
