One Legged Bird - Poem by Ellie Daphne van Stralen

one-legged-bird stands stressless
heron shows no restlessness
one momentum of movement
unheralded inducement 

nature's fair plan will reveal
my goldfish goal of his steal
with a fish he will abscond 
leaves frostbitten edge of pond

the moment is history
shocking feelings felt lively
my goldfish - our ponds first fish
ending life on heron's dish

no moments to wave goodbye
goldfish airborne sky high

Note - I have re-written the earlier version into this sonnet.
