wind through the trees -
the ragged edge
of a blackbird's song

Me, too! (especially the "ragged edge")

But is good about this haiku is all the lines work together, with perfect choice of words.

That first line really sets up the rest of the poem, without it I don't think even the ragged edge would be so strong, but be diluted.

This is simple but fine (plain language) craftship [sic].

That first line is wonderful, and then is followed by a phrase part of the haiku that not only is made 'better' by the first line, but gives more layers to the already excellent and atmospheric first line.

Fantastic poem! ;-)
