a poem sent to me from a Paternoster author (kind of sweet)

A cheeky robin chirped goodbye

The others all looked sad.

The blue-tits hopped from branch to branch

The goldcrest sang like mad

The black bird did his spring-like best

Even the crows went ‘Cor!’

For no one wanted him to go

They sang of times of yore

They tried to argue with him then:

Debate went thrust and parry;

Even when losing they kept on

And begged him ‘Think and tarry’

Spring and summer then the Fall

He thought long and hard

Made his mind up wrote his e mail

Sent it to the bard

With changing metre, cried the bard

Looking for comfort looking hard,

“Night will pass surely, then comes the dawn;

Follow the Master on to the Morn

Spring and summer then the fall

Then the Dawn Chorus waits us all.”

So who is this author?

He's a wonderful poet
and maybe doesn't know it.

He needs to be published!

Seriously, it's very good.

Glad you like it.

I probably ought not to say. He is a church leader. That is my one and only clue (and I will neither confirm nor deny any guesses).
