Ducks in the Docks and Swans Swimming


A short film (2m56s) featuring those fabulous swans and ducks from Bristol docks swimming to our song ‘Flint’.

‘Flint’ is now also available to listen and watch on our Vimeo page here. We hope you enjoy it!

The poem by Christina Rossetti was first published in her book Sing-Song in 1893.


by Christina Rossetti

An emerald is as green as grass,
A ruby red as blood;
A sapphire shines as blue as heaven;
A flint lies in the mud.

A diamond is a brillant stone,
To catch the world's desire;
An opal holds a fiery spark;
But a flint holds fire.
