Bird Hunters

I Just want to rest from my long migration Find a sweet oasis Many nets and traps full of dying songbirds adorn the route An army culls us millions migrating south hunted to extinction. Will silence replace The birdsong each morning Remember us.

Reminds me of Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring". I am in agreement with what Peter has stated just below.

It would be terrible to live without birds and I recently signed a petition to stop birds being hunted. So I hope my poem hits a note. Best wishes Linda x

Great poem, Linda, sad in its truth, but still deeply expressed, and enjoyable. Check out some of mine. Peace.
