Feather's Miscellany: Spring Chorus

John Waddington-Feather’s poem celebrates the season of new life.

God’s choristers sing out
this glorious April day:
thrushes throat a double Jubilate,
blackbirds pour their songs
across the land,
wrens trill hedgerows green
as chaffinches chaff the day away;
robins ruddy and bright-eyed
add their penn’orth, too,
while pigeons vie with mellow undertones;
and drawing nearer by the minute
a two-note cuckoo tells me
Spring, indeed, has really come.
