We sometimes say we need a change,
As a change is good as a rest
But often fail to ponder
If change is for the best.

Do we really stop to think
And have a frank exchange?

For “change, for change’s sake” can mean
That, as our rooms have faded,
When we change the wallpaper,
The furniture looks jaded.

Coruscating through the ethereal, pastel blue,
A more electric, sapphire-glinting hue,

To feast on sporting minnows, lithe and blithe,
As jocundly, amongst the rock and weed
They revel, chase and taste and dance and feed.
The kingfisher, inspiring awe and fear
