On The Levels

Mirror lake on Levels

Where mating grebes entwine

And swans make stately progress

Past cormorants in a line

Booming bitterns sounding

Distant cuckoo calls

While keen-eyed birders keep a watch

Within the tall hide walls

Piping song of warblers

Hidden in the reeds

Silent in the shallows

A lonely egret feeds

High above the wetlands

Against the cloud-flecked skies

Hobbies wheel and circle

Drawn to hunt mayflies.
