A Bird On The Wing.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Shall I compare thee to a summers night
Or a nightingales refrain
Crossing Albert Bridge in the morning light
As swans drift o’er The Thames?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 In St James Park mid-morning
When ducks are being fed
Where a song thrush or a robin
Might lock horns for scraps of bread.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 By the Serpentine when the redwing
Takes time out from the flock
You’ll often sight a chaffinch
Near the barracks in Hyde Park.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Ah sure birds are beautiful creatures,
Awesome when in flight*
As Gianfranco Zola’s twist of genius
Which subdued Canaries fans one night!



Catch this clip if you get the chance. I think it may be up on Yootube. A wonderful piece of technical ability, by a lauded idol (and man) who was playing right at the top of his game (sic).

Norwich City manager Nigel Worthington said afterwards: “The Zola goal alone, was worth the entrance fee”.

I’ve read the opening line, in a poem somewhere, but can’t for the life of me remember where or what it’s from.

Carefree…..braised in Celery.

Go well and be lucky.



*2nd line, last verse can also read as Scoring, etc, etc…… Coz that’s what he managed to do, all at the same time!
