Yesterday Jim who writes as newepicauthor asked me, “If a bird and fish were to fall in love, could you write a poem about them?“
So Jim, here’s one for you.
The long flight had been very tiring
The heron was feeling pretty peckish
The sight of the beautiful garden pond
Brought forth visions of mouth watering fish
It had sighted this pond the previous day
Devouring all that was on offer, its ambition and wish
Majestically it stood in the water
Eyeing all the swimming food, delish
As it waited patiently for a prey to come close
Who do you think swam up to him; a goldfish!
One look and the heron was mesmerised
Forgetting its raging appetite hellish
Watching in fascination and adoration
At the ebullient and fiesty goldfish
The goldfish shimmied close to the herons legs
Giving it a shy smile and looking coquettish
And thus began the unlikely love story
Of the grey heron and his sweet little fish!
