Like the sea

by Jem Croucher

We brought a solar water feature
for our birdbath as you do
‘Cos it kind of seem appropriate
and the best thing we could do

So now when it is sunny
we can sit and listen long
to the sound of falling water
as it plays its little song

It really is a peaceful sound
calming like the sea
where in these days of lockdown
I’m afraid I cannot be

Still, I can sit and listen
and take comfort that I will
again be given freedom
so I’ll bid my time until

For just like the beach my garden
is a haven at this time
complete now with a fountain
playing music when it’s fine
