As the children play

As the children play

As the children play
The morning comes awake
The sun comes peering through the mist
I sit and watch the day break
I hear the call of a sleepy duck
As he waddles up to me
Two ravens fly above my head
Their lonesome calls enthral me.

There’s a feeling deep within my soul
As I watch the river flowing
The mood in me spells harmony
And it gets my heart to glowing
In the silence, echo’s of the truth
They fill the morning air
As the breath of mystic morning comes
To leave my soul quite bare.

The kookaburra’s crazy laugh
Does break on through the morn
As more waddling ducks arrive
To laze upon the lawn
And all around day comes alive
With the song of, tiny birds
As I watch these little fairy wrens
Such joy in me is stirred.

    What a lovely poem. Now I have to look up Kookaburra. A very odd name. Haven't heard of it before. Love to learn about new animals. Thank you.

    Thank you Jon. A Kookaburra is a handsome looking Kingfisher, who has a strange laughing call which echos through the countryside. I love these birds
