Kingfisher: A poem from the delightful fundraising collection “Poetry Giving”

The Kingfisher. An exquisite specimen created by nature, and a fitting subject for a poem.

This poem features in “Poetry Giving” the new fundraising collection by Anita Williams.


Feathers resplendent in aquamarine

Proud and important, the Kingfisher’s preen.

He waits with a razor sharp eye for his prey

And dives through the fortress of rapids and spray.

His catch is abundant; not one fish, but two

On his perch his magnificence radiates blue.

Nature’s finest precision at work as he fishes

A lightening bolt of turquoise, then wriggles and squishes.

Out of the water as fast as he came

Safe harvest on riverbank, then off for the same.

Once fatted this gluttonous plumage flies on

A dart of emotional splendour…..then gone.


Anita Williams
