A jackdaw sidles up
to the bench by the shore
where I have morning coffee
and a chelsea bun.
My favourite bench.
Now, it perches upon the fence,
disheveled, off-colour, a corvid
who's been through many campaigns.

Jackdaw, do wing feathers of old birds
turn grey?

Three hundred yards from us,
beyond the bay,
a schooner from centuries ago
has just set sail.
