READERS’POETRY: From the Bury Free Press of October 9

This week, we have two poems from Wilf Daniells, from Market Weston.

SHY DOVE

Oft she turns to stand and stare

To see if there is anything there

Then she by some corn will stop

And peck away to taste a drop

She sits below a seed container

To show she isn’t a no-brainer

And waits until a seed falls down

Spilt by a blackbird – the clown!

Snails and worms she does not eat

But only seeds, small and neat

When she’s full she flies away

We hope to see her another day.

BEATING THE ODDS

We hang out clothes along the line

When the day seems warm and fine

The sun belies the cold that lies

On the ground beneath the skies

For we know of the shadowed snow

Where the sun just cannot go

We say why not hope for the best

Put the weather to the test

And then we see the rain come near

Oh! Let’s take them in, oh dear.
