Magpie in the Garden

Announced

By its echoing strident chatter

Concealed within the weeping willow

One for sorrow in the jade garden

Curious and intelligent

Solitary scavenger

Shimmer of black and white

Flash of iridescent sheen

Amongst the green

And it is gone

With the golden autumn wind

To join the bridge of piebald birds

That bring together

The weaver and the cowherd

From opposite banks

Of the silver river

Magpie
