I said those words aloud just now
To the open air. Robin didn’t answer;
He didn’t seem to care.
"Oh, ho!" I thought, "Your little brain
Has soon forgotten how he came
And flushed you from your evening nest
And ran you crazy like the rest
Of the birds he used to rule."
He’s in the ground, and like a fool,
I sit alone and think on how
I said those words aloud just now.
