Red-winged blackbirds sing in a Wisconsin marsh — YouTube Video

When you’ve been/
dumped,/
take your canoe/
up a creek/
without a partner./

Still,/
alone,/
listen to /
red-winged blackbird/
couples/
sing together/
as they watch,/
and feather their nests,/
and call sweet dreams/
to the sunset.
Red-winged blackbird couple sing to a canoe up a creek without a paddle, Lake Winneconne / Mud Creek, May 2016

that someone else will.
