Rabbit prints

. . . and rabbit prints in the snow


Black and Cream Heading Said the Sycamore Tree Waiting Their Turn Bird Index Main Poetry Index

The visitors to our garden come

    In their twos and threes.

The ducks tap on our window panes

    And birds sit in our trees.


The moorhens, squirrels, pigeon too;

    The blackbirds, robins, wrens:

They disappear when night arrives

    But next day come again.


In springtime they're accompanied

     With young, just newly born,

And they expect, of course, to find

     Some breakfast every morn.


Young squirrels play quite happily,

    Chasing round and round.

They proudly show their skill with pride

    As up the trees they bound.


So, who comes to your garden then?

    You ought to make a list.

It's good to share the things we have

    With the others in our midst.
