HOPE LIVED

Winter
Was harsh that year,
Ice covered all the ponds,
No birds could feed beneath the ice,
Hungry,
They died.
We thought that all was lost that year,
There wasn’t any hope………
A kingfisher
Appeared.

This bird
Survived despite
There being no fish to eat,
We wondered how it clung to life,
And sang.
And then
We saw it eating bread, it learnt
A new way of eating,
Hope lived again
That day

  2. What is that ??? I see birds all day long out in my yard. Some are here all year round. others migrate through for either the summer or winter. They are really nice to listen to and watch fly and skip around
