A JUNE DAY, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: I heard a red-winged blackbird singing
Last Line: That never will come again.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): June

I heard a red-winged black-bird singing
Down where the river sleeps in the reeds;
That was morning, and at noontime
A humming-bird flashed on the jewel-weeds;
Clouds blew up, and in the evening
A yellow sunset struck through the rain,
Then blue night, and the day was ended
That never will come again.
