A Few Words on Behalf of Local Residents!
By Richard Morgan
Be us ever so humble
We hope you won’t mind
If we put a few words in for our kind
We have waited beneath
While rain and wind above clattered
For us fast asleep its really not mattered
Now the warming Spring sun
Has stirred us out of our beds
We’ve burst through! And, a bit early, are showing our heads
Not celebrities or toffs
Few of us foreign of birth
Just most ancient peasants of this English earth
We are the boy and girl next door
We don’t often turn heads
Like those colourful blooms in your garden beds
But do stop for a moment
On your countryside walk
Just for a bit, leave your mobile phone talk
If you look up quite close
You’ll see our beauty and grace
And we hope for a moment we put a smile on your face.
This gorgeous little poem was kindly contributed by my friend Richard Morgan after I spotted it on social media. As Spring draws to a close and we approach summer I thought it would be lovely to include this little nod to all the little gems that line our hedgerows, pathways and wild places. The first wild flowers of Spring are the first signs of hope for warmer weather and signal nature’s rhythm and change. I hope you enjoyed this poem as much as I did.
See you on Wednesday for the next Connect to Nature Creative Writing Class. This week’s theme is the beautiful goldfinch. Hope to see you there.
