Patience: A Soothing Day



The bird waits patiently

for the rising of the tide

having gathered treasures

looking for a place to hide


Others are coming

in search of the treasures

hidden in a nest

all for his pleasure


Walking along the bank

looking for a mate

he struts along

dancing for his date


The female is on the nest

the male sees a fish

he dives in

captures the main dish


The tide has risen

walking along the shore

followed by his young family

keeping them secure


The grass is swaying

the sun and water meet

the birds return to the nest

till time for the morning greet
