Dunlins At Dawn 

Low across the tide edge
Lit up by early sun
A darting flock of dunlin
Turn and wheel as one
Though starlings' murmurations
Paint sky with swirls of black
These pretty little waders
Shine white as out and back
They fly from river inlet
Towards the Channel grey
Amid the lonely curlew call
Here seemingly at play.
