BULLFINCH


This beautiful and most colourful finch has a nest at the Knox, beside the Canal. I was struck by his beauty and wrote this poem to celebrate

I SAW A BULLFINCH TODAY

AN AWESOME BIRD WITH NOTHING TO SAY

BEAUTIFUL BIRD BUT HE CANNOT SING

EVAN WHEN EVERY BRANCH BURSTIS LIT WITH SPRING

HIS BEAUTY MADE ME FREEZE AT THE SPOT

AND SPEAK I DARE NOT

HIS MAGIC THREW A SPELL ON ME TO  STAND

I WAS LOOKING AT THE COLOURS OF GODS HAND

I stand here

I stand here

     Anchored under a chestnut tree

     Beautiful leaves of autumn

     Blossomed by the goldfinch

     Here I can comprehend eternity

     A horse frozen in the field

     A gull chased by crows

     A squirrel dancing on a branch

     The scent of the usual

     Waiting for the sun

     I reimburse my vision of contentment

     I am here

     Where I want to be.
