IN ‘THE MEN’S SHED’ ON DUBLIN ROAD ON THE 17TH JULY 2020 by Timmy Conway

Crows Roaring

Gulls Screaming

Swans chasing Ducks

Children throwing bread

Into the still water

Of the canal

All is quiet for a second

Then all hell breaks loose

Pandemonium everywhere

Each bird determines to be first

The Strongest gets there

Best fed

Looking for more

Always looking for more

For much needs more

This is the way it is

Always was

And always will be.  

CHESTNUT TREE

I stood under a drooping chestnut tree

All were there

Just me

With leaves like a Banshees hair

And I was there

To watch a new leaf grow

To let me know

To swallow and forget

That I will pass

But not yet

I will enjoy this moment and forget
