January 2015

Canada geese were gathering
Around the lake at Druridge bay
Preparing for their take off time
To return from whence they came

All in prime condition
From the photo you can see
A special day to remember
For you to share with me

Swans, ducks and sea birds
Lined along the lakeside banks
They came to see this spectacle
And also to give thanks

This… January day at 1pm precisely
The timing of their flight
Heads thrust out necks full stretch
Their legs tucked out of sight

Skimming along the shimmering lake
Then banking to the right
Now flying south as they levelled out
A truly magnificent sight

Climbing high into the sky
Meeting others over the bay
It’s time that they were leaving
This January day.
