A mantle of black with open yellow beak swallowing all the midday air possible -
as if it were taking part in some competition among the fraternity of garden birds
yet making a presence so small and so still mocking death by acting cool -
in a temperature of five and twenty this most noted strident bird does not move as
on another nearby lawn two teenage cats fight -
the ginger and white bib chasing off a young black pretender both oblivious of the black
caped stillness as the sun lingers after its travail in hurrying in a glorious summer's day
in spring making the flower garden glow with pride having no inkling of its and ours fall.
