Spring Saturday

The bloody pigeons bill and coo
The sky’s a gentle sapphire blue
And blue tits pair around the seeds
They answer two of nature’s needs
The grass is green and daffodils
Are jealous of the blackbird’s thrills
The robins now come in a pair
Demanding meal worms they can share
The sparrows mate at every chance
And lead the chorus in the dance
The squirrels too have felt the change
And find the need to rearrange
They raid the garden two by two
And I can sit and dream of you
