Wrote this one for you:

There’s a scurry of squirrels in the knobthorn tree
as arrow-marked babblers boast to me
that a pair of fish eagles are wheeling free,
crying: Guma Lagoon’s the place to be.

Last night we all went out in a boat,
worried that we would find a bloat
of hippos, but there were none afloat,
singing: Guma Lagoon’s the place to note.

A murmuring of starlings (Meves’s of course)
entertained us with their sauce,
and open-billed storks – some thirty en force –
swear that Guma Lagoon’s the place to source.

They embroidered the sky with a wavy thread
– a ripple of white against the red –
mustering on, I’m sure they said
Guma Lagoon’s the place to head.
