THE OSPREY




My good friend John

 

My good friend John (Jack the Lad) asked me to write this for him (I am his carer) to remind him of a day out he had in the Highlands of Scotland while visiting his daughter June and son-in-law Tony. Just for you John x


THE OSPREY


~~ Soar on wings of gold~~
~Across the endless skies~
~In search of the dreams~
~That live in your heart~






I`ll never forget that day
I sat and watched the Osprey,
Her head moving all around
Listening for the slightest sound.



Down came her mate with a fish
Looked like it was the main dish,
He sat and ate all his share
She would shout at him and stare.



Over he flew with the rest
She pulled it free with such zest,
His turn to mind the nest
Guarding North, South, East and West.



Oh! What a sight to behold
There`s no one I haven`t told,
`I`ll never forget that day
I sat and watched the Osprey`.
