Spring Garden – at the Birdfeeders

Pretty creature like a mouse,
Flittering about my house.
Gaudy bluetit in the sun,
Through the branches you do run.

Greenfinch come and greenfinch go,
On the roof then down below.
Goldfinch sparring with a sister,
Warring till it seemed you kissed her.

Starling speckled in shining black,
Pecking beak in sharp attack.
Pink a-flutter, collared dove,
With your mate a branch above.

Tiny dunnock, nervous, shy,
Clear depicted on the sky.
Blackbird, with your yellow bill,
Tense with life’s ongoing thrill.
