Bird Poems

Look out upon a country scene

    And you’re bound to see a crow.

Related to the chough and jay

    And other birds you’ll know.


He's cousin to the raven too -

    Though, not the raven’s size –

And also cousin to the jay

    Which may be a surprise.


Rooks and jackdaws – handsome birds -

     Sit high in my tall tree,

But for charisma and intelligence,

    The experts all agree . . . .


The crow must surely top the list,

     And I’ll not disagree.

Also this bird, not liked by all,

    Has cast his spell on me.
