The family way

All that excitement in the air
forget the grey clouds

the sharp frost overnight
all that excitement

is the sound of birds
clamouring for attention

spring is around the corner
smarten up those nests

gather fresh twigs and
any soft fibre you can find

to create a featherbed
no time to clutch at straws

time to get broody
to go forth and multiply

nature’s unswerving path
is the family way

John Lyons
