Jackdaw

Jackdaw

What is relentless
           is the pushing forward of time
See how the colours of summer
           have faded and how already
there are anticipations
           of autumn as the days draw in

the jackdaw at my window
           has laid its eggs
its nestlings have fledged
           six hungry mouths to be fed
so that they are big and strong
           before winter sets in
