Free Skylark Poems
The Ides of March Foretell the flowers, The warming soil and lightening hours. Busy birds chatter
May the rabbits roam the countryside, And skylarks fill the blue. Robins contest the hedgerows, Into which they flew.
The Birds Don't Understand
The sign said 'Caution, Lorries Turning', Metal beasts made marks upon the land. It all makes sense to money-makers, But the birds don't understand.

The Ides of March
Foretell the flowers,
The warming soil and lightening hours.
Busy birds chatter
With all their spring plans.
Building nests, sitting high,
Claiming pockets of land.
Green shoots in the hedgerows,
Fresh growth underfoot.
The year's first bee, a blossom tree,
The book of winter firmly shut.
Oh! To be a wanderer
And see this show for free.
Blackbird's shrill, Woodpecker's drill,
Springs hope inside of me.
