A Real Cuckoo


I heard a cuckoo this morning
It was as clear as the morning air
Calling across a wooded valley
Was the first I have ever heard
Apart from a clock in our front room
That was many years ago
But this was a real cuckoo I heard
Because my watch said five past nine.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
