'Awe Wallking' is one of the new jargon terms in mental health, a popular discussion topic on the state of our minds in the Covid crisis. This kind of jargonese is laughable. It basically refers to a walk outside in nature for our well-being. The garden incident reminded me of an occasion 40 years ago as a teacher.

Out of the corner of my eye

A scuffle down by the fence

 

Who is it, who's involved, I ask? Sir,

Sir, it's McCartney and Bell: oh?

 

McCartney, scrawny, sleekit, smarmy,

Bell, a 13yr old version of 'The Rock'

 

I decide not to intervene, let Nature 

Take its course for a while! Actually

 

No! It's two early morning Blackbirds

Kicking up a frosty Autumn leaf-pile

 

Harmoniously guddling, scuffling,

Searching, sorting, snacking.

 

I decide not to intervene, let Nature

Take its course, just watch and marvel.
