Following on from my post about Cuckoos, Malcolm Creese – the person who directed me to Delius – sent me a Japanese haiku poem that he wrote about the Cuckoo. This was highly commended in an international competition. I love it…

Malcolm says, the idea is that some people talk an awful lot but don’t say much, and others can speak two or three words and it means much more.
