Waiting for birds is a collection that traverses nearly half a century and three countries, and for poet Rob King it is one of his last chances at seeing his work in print. For the past four years Rob has been adjusting to life with Alzheimer's, with much of what he knew lost to ...him, including the ability to write the poetry he loves. The work old and new he's collected here allows him to find and share some of his memories again. With a compassionate and humorous eye, Rob takes himself and the reader from a childhood in Yorkshire - listening to the radiogram, making jam or watching a neighbour fishing for hens, through the challenges of working with the homeless in Scotland and worm-watching with one of his sons, to the new life he found in New Zealand, observing people at Ngaio train station, cycling the streets and just ... waiting for birds.
