Summer Dawn

Summer Dawn

My sleeping children are still flying dreams
In their goose-down heads.
The lush of the river singing morning songs
Fish watch their ceilings turn sun-white.
The grey-green pike lances upstream
Kale, like mermaid’s hair
Points the water’s drift.
All is morning hush
And bird beautiful.

I only,
I didn’t have flu.



Poem Summer Dawn - Spike Milligan
