Creative Writing: 4 a.m.

Thank god for Birdsong
thank god for the birds
the whistling and chirping
in absence of words

Whilst Mind plays its tricks
on such tender of souls
the birds always come
to refill timely holes

At last it has ended
the serenaders have arrived
to sweep me away
from this nightmare, contrived

It’s four a.m.
a respectable time
as the clock’s past three
there’s no doubt i’ll be fine

Now dawn is arriving
some stray light appears
it’s now i can see
there’s no reason for fear

Thank god for Birdsong
thank god for the birds
it’s really about time
their voices were heard

    Is this author 14 years old with absolutely zero knowledge on music? Has to be. Two out of three songs are irrelevant. Both by shitty bands. Who paid for this?…

    Should we mourn GCSE poetry?
    Wonderful article! Very insightful and brilliantly communicated. I wasn't aware of this issue before, but this article has really brought it to light for me. Thank you very much!
