Topic: The Tui's Lament
Hello everyone I hope you are keeping safe and well. A tui is a native bird here in New Zealand. Here is a poem I wrote about the lockdown.
The Tui’s Lament
It’s morning, someone has wiped the stars off my windows.
No blackness and little lights flickering.
Now there is blue sky and clouds moving by.
As I head out into a deserted land a Tui yells at me.
Why arent people heading to the city I want this place for me.
No more noisy cars ,trucks and taxis singing with me.
In the morning when I sing my song it’s only birds and me.
Even the neighbourhood cats have given up chasing me
