                           once upon a quarter century
                           the beat and heart of teaching
                                thousands of birds
                                through all time
                                come to the ancient tree
                           was quantified immeasurably
                           inverse to a fading quality
                                generations now of
                                magpies and crows
                                who bring dispute
                                and change and sit
                                in the tree making
                                loud noises
                           all the better to make the numbers rise and fall my dear
                           consistency and behaviour to within an inch of its life
                                droppings in the branches
                                droppings down the trunk
