For All To Be Well


The hawk hovered over the river
Going round and round despair
It could feel a hunger in its liver
It needed a meal without a care

It saw a gubby rushing up for air
This was it's chance here and now
And it zoomed down in quick flare
Not caring, if it was good enough

The children on the river-bank
Watched the feathered creature
As it took to the sky, claws sank
Hating the hunter's - adventure

They threw pebbles at the bird
But it did not let go of the meal
Even as stones came to it's head
It needed the fish for all to be well.
