Great Blue Heron

Even when I walk up close
he pays no attention to me
as he walks along the shore
peering into shallow water
looking for some juicy crab
or unsuspecting sushi.

He looks like a dorky teacher
teaching advanced algebra,
all eyes and bones and beak,
lecturing to invisible students,
hungry for that one moment
when he will get across his
                                                point.

  1. This poem made me feel happy because he describes the heron in a different and funny way, like the dorky teacher and comparing sushi to fish. grade 4 (aes)

  3. This poem reminds me of when I went somewhere in India not far off from New Delhi. It reminds me of the place because when we went on a walk though the village there was a small lake and slowly walking in the water was a heron it was acting the same as the one you wrote about in the first 3 lines.- Saskia, grade 4 AES.

  4. This poem made me visualise a blue heron walking confidently (head up towards the sky) in the forest river.Walking slowly in the cold blue water, and in the same time the blue heron is pearing into the water for fish swimming in the water. (To eat the fish)

  5. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
