The Heron :- A poem by Steve Mitchell

With a nickname of the Grey Ghost he stalks his fishy pray.

Lurking around the river bank he rarely wants to play.

A solitary feeder ....he never follows any leader.

With gangly legs and big long bill you often see him having his fill.

Where do you sleep you great big bird

You appear like you are from another world.

Why did you ravage my Koi's and Carp

If I catch you round here again you will end up playing a harp!

Only joking the Heron is my favourite 2 legged winged creature.At least I made the poem rhyme. Something you don't see much now.

    Sorry about that. I've seen them on T.V. swollening down big fish's. Hey, how about some photo's went you restock you pond?

    I see them everyday as I work around East Anglia covering an area bordering the Wash.

    My first encounter with one when I left my garden pond uncovered overnight. When I came home it was sitting on the roof of my house with a satisfied look on its face. It had just consumed most of my Koi Carp.

    I forgave it eventually then realised how beautiful they really are. Needless to say, once my pond was restocked I have never left it uncovered again.

    Thanks for the comment writer20
