The Sylvan Heights Rhyme

Across the seas I came
For breeding skills to claim
I learnt a thing or two
And met a real niice crew

Ali, Mother Goose to all the team
Nick, as happy as a cat with cream
Mike, Master of all webbed feet
Though a tad fussy with what to eat!

Molly the dog, who’s not a dog
She really ought to have her own blog
Tipsy turvey, the cuddle monster
Also known as a mean ball hustler
Logan berry, the woolly bear
With love enough for all to share

I’ll miss the magpies’ nerdy ways
The goldeneye’s mad displays
The Black-necked daddies so so stressed
And the Chestnut pair dressed for best

But most of all my dear wee Maude
Rearing her, I have adored
And whistling to Katie our favourite song
Smiling as she danced and sang along

About Olivia N Masi

From art college drop-out, to office space-planner, to back-packer, to air stewardess, to brolly babe, to model agent, to wildlife conservationist. How? I've always believed in jumping at every opportunity that comes my way. This has taken me along some bizarre career paths. None of which I regret. I have been to amazing places and met fascinating people. And having worked in the motor sport industry I've sadly experienced too many beloved friends take one adrenalin step too many. I think of them always. I've hung out with pop-stars, sports personalities, and millionaires. I reached a point when nothing but VIP would do. And then something happened. My pops passed away and I felt the need to reconnect with my Italian side. Whilst in Italy, I learnt to be resourceful, to recycle everything, to listen to the valley, to grow my own veg, to catch and tame feral cats, and to follow my heart. My heart led me to a desire to save this beautiful Earth, and all the wonderful life upon it. And so I read, and then I studied with the Open University. I suddenly found myself accepted on a BSc in Wildlife Conservation, having left school with pitiful qualifications. So here I am. A qualified Wildlife Conservationist. A scientist I suppose. I love nothing more than to listen to birdsong, and watch, learn and photograph wildlife. So here is to me getting the perfect job where I can contribute to saving one of Earth's beautiful species. Do I miss the glamour of the old life? The VIP lifestyle? The petrol-head adrenalin? The buzz of being a successful business owner? Only occasionally. Though it seems more like the distant dreams of a previous life.
