Magnificent gray wagtail

hunting on the rock

around the second lock

in wind and rain and hail


with each swift assail

you catch a tasty tick

to feed a hungry chick

or maybe your female


when your work is done

you sit and guard the nest

or maybe have a rest

or watch your firstborn son


to guarantee each year

nothing will go wrong

to sadden your hen’s song

and your kind will reappear
