The Constant Heronm

The constant Heron

Stands in the same spot ever morning

Often going into himself

A skeleton in his wings

A half staved thing

All skin and bones

Docile

Sleeping

With the patience of JOB

Then suddenly alive

Needles the still water in the canal

Pounces

Takes a fish out

And swallows the daggling thing.

A blackbird sings

 

  • A blackbirds sings

     His song perfected

     after a million rehearsals

     Brought to flame on this April day

 

     A hawk that stood on air

     Cast a beady eye

     And robbed our inheritance

And
