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
