This week’s poem, called Our Garden, is by Colin Clements.

A Robin visits our garden at least twice a week

He comes and sits on our garden seat

Is he stopping to have a rest,

Or is he looking for somewhere to nest?

Two Blue Tits are flying around

Looking for a nesting place on the ground

They see a nesting box up on the wall,

Would it be to big for them or to small?

The lawn is looking very green

The Starlings come and give it a clean

Catching the flies and the bugs

Like we clean our indoor rugs.

The birds are feeding on the fat balls

The name of them I cannot recall.

Sparrows are fluttering all around

Picking up all the scraps they find on the ground

The Blackbird finishes the day with his evening chorus,

I think he is singing just for us.
