The Observer - For all the Royal Anglians past and present

Standing by a tree, rifle on hip
Leaves red and yellow like a Viking ship
Watching from the shadows, a poachers eye
Silently waiting as phantoms glide by
A noise, just a bird on the forest floor
Preening and dancing like Madame Pompadour.

Footsteps follow a distant call
Crouching like a woodlouse in a steel backed ball
Face in the dirt, a mouthful of leaves
Hiding in the gloom, nobody sees
Silence, nothing but another ghost
With the stealth of a tiger, moves back to his post.

    Thanks Nick - Glad you enjoyed it. It contains the nicknames of the Royal Anglian Regiments so nice to know the story worked for someone who would not necessarily be aware of that fact.
