A Wren

A symbol of hope

a small bird in your garden

a long way North you think

making you smile


A navy wren on duty

helping the war effort

smart and caring

a symbol of hope


Seeing one there

a small delicate bird

the weight of a pound coin

yet that loud voice

singing full of joy


Wrens are so common

that we don’t see them

or hear them

yet they have been with us

since the ice age


Not navy wrens

but those small birds

some sedentary

some flying 1500 miles

Living in special nests


– Pauline Smith
