Magpie poem


The Magpie




Two tone thieves gather like senators

or tenors, slightly tipping as if heavy bellied.

Green and purple smudged feathers glint

as the sunlight catches them.

They chatter on the trapeze of a fairy thorn.

Ever vigilant, a salmons glance towards glinting

treasures, presumed below in suburbs.


They come, silent now, a pilots precision

gliding towards the gold milk tops

shining like fools gold on the door step,

cute enough, they scan the house for noise,

I stand; still as an Oak tree.

Carefully they pluck the lid

lap up the cream stash the lids in their beaks

and make off for the hill top again.

                                                            Still, I love these birds beautiful to look at and very noisey at times.

Aine,
I have just read your poem. What a delightful image.
I too love the grace and style of the magpie, in spite of their roguish behaviour!

Best wishes, Eileen
