The Ospreys

by themapofantarctica

The Ospreys were both there,

male and female in the nest,

You could watch them on the large screens

erected in the bird hide,

It took a long time for the female to find her mate

but now he incubates her eggs for her,

Not quite the eyes of a hawk that got him tied down

and catching halibut for four,

He makes sure he gets a little spare time to soar

in the great Welsh mountains,

But can’t help but feel that life was cut short

with two young on the way.

Of course, she tells everyone that life is perfect,

that you won’t meet a closer family than the Ospreys.
