Estimated 50 billion wild birds globally. here's one.

Thrush, not the malicious

Insidious, conniving enemy in

'The Man From U. N. C. L. E' 

 

Rather, the truly beautiful, plump

Insectivorous, speckle-breasted

Visiting our sodden garden daily 

 

Neither squelching nor slip-sliding,

Sure-footed hawking with insider

Knowledge and forensic precision

 

Blessing, with 'Glory-be-to-God'

Beauty, despite ram-rod rain,

Hoppity-hopping pleasure, me, I mean.
