Andrew Macphail, comp.  The Book of Sorrow.  1916.
 
X. The Pity of It
Vespers
By Thomas Edward Brown (1830–1897)
 
O BLACKBIRD, what a boy you are!
How you do go it!
Blowing your bugle to that one sweet star—
How you do blow it!
And does she hear you, blackbird boy, so far?        5
Or is it wasted breath?
‘Good Lord! she is so bright
To-night!’
The blackbird saith.
