National Poetry Day, Nightingale.
Only two days to go until National Poetry Day!!!
Poem number 14, in this series of poems incorporating light, read by people whose ways of life or jobs are connected with light, is written by me.
It is read by wildlife cameraman and producer Matt Brierley, and is a poem about the nightingale.
This bird, famous for its glorious song, sung at night, is in serious decline. Its population has fallen by a staggering 90% in the last 40 years, mainly due to loss of habitat .
I love writing about birds.
Thank you to Matt Brierley for the lovely reading.
