Blackbird, My Blackbird


I once met a girl out chasing the rain
Skipping through puddles in blissful refrain
No rules seen, but the way she was grinning
I knew straight off she must have been winning

Her glasses fogged up, her smile full of teeth
And yellow boots like her soul underneath
A bright buttercup shade warm as the sun
Placed a smile on my face where once was none

Raven hair and eyes set on pallid skin
With freckled cheeks and a feminine chin
The little blackbird called to me and said
'Take off your hood, and let it hit your head! '

At once obliged, I removed my raincoat
And joined her in splashing through her small moat
Soaked to the bone after an hour or two
We shuffled inside for some tea and stew

A romp in the rain and a shared soup bowl
Then I bid adieu to her eyes of coal
Blackbird, my blackbird, never again seen
But I think of you often when the skies aren't so serene

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
