24 May: dVerse Corvid

magpie sitting on a fence post

A Very Unpleasant Poem

I once saw a magpie
steal the eye of a lamb.
Left it lame and blind,
and in a fence entwined.
The shepard’s dog sat watch
all night that very spot.
It waited for that magpie –
soon in its mouth was caught.

    • Lambs eyes, yes. It’s common when lambs are born outside. Our previous house was next door to a large sheep farm, and I spent a lot of time there during lambing.
