Deeply within am I struck!
watching the shimmering flightof this gaudy projectile, iridescent diver
speed fishing, flashing by O! so majestically!
No sooner returned to perch
on the wispiest of branches, than in a trice
having contemplated his next targetted plunge-is gone!
spear shaping his miraculously plumed body
he pierces the rivers undulating face
in a dart-like submergence
snatching his silvery fayre of unsuspecting minnows.
O! spectacularly glistening King!
shall my road into this nights slumber
be with the accompanying memory of such a beautiful witnessing.
And, when the Moonchild of night,
has given up his games of hide and seek
with the approaching ghost of dawn
there shall you be
hastily flittering to and fro amongst the early light
unperturbed, by the thinning spectral shrouds of mist
floating above the flowing depths.
Willingly, and so gladly, shall my heart once more,
succomb to being a guest of this wondrous sight
this perfect scene
greatly enhanced by natures endless invitations
to see you again sweet avian
the so shining finest of hosts.
