  1. Bird Sanctuary

    by Dinah Livingstone

    Seals sunning themselves,
    women all shapes and sizes sprawl
    with birdsfoot trefoil, buttercups,
    flowering grasses, wild geraniums
    and self heal on the lower meadow
    of the Ladies’ Pond Enclosure.

    Whish! goes a kingfisher,
    its turquoise matching the dragonfly’s,
    bird akin to insect as woman is to seal.
    On the next pond down, swans,
    moorhens, ducks, coots
    pursue their wild lives in peace.

    It’s called the Bird Sanctuary.
    Switch off your mobile,
    sisters under the skin,
    twinned, one pond for ladies
    and one is for the birds.
