as ten herons hare


as ten herons hare  (  erah snoreh net sa  )

one robin bobs

with the bubbles on the birdbath

two cuckoos tock

with the ticks of a clock

three peewits pee

in a pea green bottle bank

four jackdaws caw

in the yawns of a morning

five finches fly

like a mackerel in the welkin

six siskins sink

in a red kitchenette

seven penguins prance

with the ants in y' pantry

eight ravens rave

in a static caravan

nine nightingales

sing in albert square

as ten herons hare

in the clover - over there
