Have You Seen? Have You Heard? - Poem by Joyce Hemsley

Have you seen the mockingbird
in the tree abiding
resting in a homely place
where humans are residing?

Glorify the birds
albatross and eagle
fabulously regal.

Have you heard the hummingbird
coloured wings a-quivering
flying hither, flying dither
around the flowers twittering?

Sanctify the birds
turtle dove and herring gull
beautifully regal.

Have you seen the lyre bird
resting on the ground
always bright, sweet delight
devouring insects from the mound?

Venerate the birds
gentle swan and seabird
elegant and gently regal.
