The Tale of the Meadow Pippin.

Meadow Pipit

That last line,

can we snip it?

I don’t want to be a Labrador,

don’t want to be a Whippet.

I want to be a Pointer

with a point to score

I want to be a Retriever

bringing it back, encore!

I want to be a Robin, a Magpie,

a Swan;

but, I don’t want to eat a worm – worm, begone!

Happy to be a lark,

singing like a nightingale in that square;

Batty as an owl, flighty in the dark,

Flappy as a thing beyond compare;

I want to be a Meadow Pippin!

(That last line,

can we snip it?)
