    Default The Kestrel

    Most of my poetry is based on life experience and what I see.
    Hopefully I have the facts right in my wildlife poems.
    This is little story that I experienced whilst on a sew of days holiday at my son's in Yateley Han'ts
    This is what I saw in a field at Horseshoe Lake


    The Kestrel

    The Kestrel sits quietly on the post of a fence
    And patiently waits for his prey
    As I stand and look on
    He is instantly gone
    After his catch of the day

    He has spotted a mouse and gets into position
    Soon he will make a sharp dive
    He’ll hover above
    And with out any love
    Will swoop down and take it alive

    I admire this Falcon. He’s shrewd and he’s clever
    He’s no match with his hover and pause
    He’s quick, and he’s fast
    His dive does not last
    As he takes up his prey with his claws

    All though he’s not huge his wingspan is wide
    And his tail like a fan he will spread
    He is one of a kind
    So accurate you’ll find
    He’s the best it just has to be said
