Morning Cormorant - Poem by C Richard Miles

A sudden sight, a wonder in the humdrum
Among the thronging streets of run-down London

Upon the river bank, crammed in by traffic
A perched, black bird, though nothing as dramatic

As flocks of squawking seagulls on the common
But this sole, common shag won't be forgotten:

Uncommon cormorant, a seaside fisher
Who chose to catch his fish in my New River,

A morning miracle of inspiration
That brightened my dull bus-ride to the station.
