Can't think what has started me to pen again ? perhaps to much alphabet
soup ?

Night Time Noises.

Imagine if you can,
A moonless star filled night,
Warm summer breezes,
Not a shiver in sight,
As you peer out across this land,
Searching for what made the noise,
Torch in your hand,
It's beam cutting the voids,
Then by chance you see it,
You gather in the sight,
A beautiful " Masked Lapwing "
Happily working his night,

He wanders his muddy grassland,
Tapping on the ground,
Back and Forth he wanders,
Till a tasty morsel he has found,
It may be a juicy worm,
Or a NOT so agile frog,
He snares it in his beak,
>From under a rotting log,
So if you should some day ponder,
Think hard of where he goes to wander,
Give yourself a headache no more,
It's to every Southern Australian Shore.
