Teacups & Blackbirds


I stand by the
Window, teacup in hand,
Casting my eyes
Upon this modest land.
Outside I hear
The morning blackbird sing
To a cold dawn,
A new day in the spring.
In time, I sit
By the window so deep,
Sipping my tea
As I drift off to sleep.

Open my eyes
And a new scene is born,
Blackbirds chirping
To another spring morn;
In this vast land,
There’s fields, pastures of green,
Endless beauties
Of nature can be seen;
I see the lambs
Playing, chase each other,
Small furry calves
That follow their mother;
I see farmers’
Dogs that round up the sheep,
Blessing the day
With their chorus of bleats;
I see these great
Fields, witness perfection,
Eyes catching naught
But nature’s invention.

Under the tree,
I sit with my teacup,
Blissfully wait
For the sun to come up;
Sit here and smile
As I sip on my tea,
Nothing but the
Birds, the meadows and me;
Slowly, happy,
I can finish my drink,
Lay my head down,
Into the grass I sink…

I wake up and
See the room as before:
Cracked glass window,
The tea stains on the floor.
I am not sad
That I woke from the dream;
One day I’ll find
Those meadows, fields of green;
I’ll sit under
The shade of that great tree,
Happily smile
As I sip on my tea.


About DickensianJack

Born in Wolverhampton in November '93, moved to Huddersfield in September 2012. Studying at the University of Huddersfield. In love with the town - simple as that. As for the blog itself, I've been doing bits and pieces of writing (with varying quality) for a few years. A friend suggested I start a blog to share my work. Most of the stuff on here is poems, but there's other work interspersed on the page. Feel free to leave any comments on my work.
