Raindrops gently dapple silver pond
allowing for quiet reflection.
Silent surface no longer becalmed,
now hidden fish escape detection.
Carpet of green adorning island,
as new born goslings leave its shelter
Once so noisy, now all is silent,
geese, ducks and coots all helter skelter.
Nearby, Mom’s head pops out, all worried,
Merlin’s shrieks causing her unease, while
new babes fledging proceeds, unhurried.
falcon drifts away, all now peaceful.
