    The Fishing Bird

    Patience is a virtue
    One should keep it if one can
    I waited an hour and forty-five
    My eyes tuned in to scan

    My waiting was rewarded
    My time was wasted not
    For flying down along the brook
    I see this tiny red/bluish dot

    My camera was excited
    I tried to keep it still
    For I was standing on a slope
    My feet were poised uphill

    The little dot got bigger
    Then it rested on a twig
    I knew the bird as it landed
    Because it wasnít very big

    I was staring at a fishing bird
    In his beak he had a fish
    Britainís own Kingfisher
    Then he flew off with a swish
