Donald S Murray – writer & poet

Donald S Murray
writer & poet

At six o’clock (or so) this morning,

they broke out of social isolation,
their songs a mix of celebration,
wooing, warning
as they rejoiced in close proximity
within a garden lined and edged by trees.
 
Did I envy them - these starlings, sparrows?
Yes - for the way they recklessly embraced
their neighbour’s plumage,
squabbled beak to face,
swirled into the distance,
 
Unlike those of us all bunkered down,
the grounded human race.
