Through Storms’ End, Deep Snow,
To A Warm Spring That Runs Clear
All Through the Winter

A Quacking, Flapping
Urgency of Ducks rises, flees.
The Red-Tailed Hawk StaysHe Makes Eye Contact

A Glance Over His Shoulder
Tail Feathers ShakenHe Raises His Wings
As If Stretching and Rises,
Floating Into Air

Effortless, He Glides
By, Holding My Eye, Watching
Silent, Moving, Still

One Circle, Then Two
I am appraised. He is not
Afraid or Impressed

So He Turns His Head
And Slides Away, Mystery
Above the Deep Snow

Deep Snow, Breaking Trail,
Snowshoes and Poles Creak Like The
Calls of Sandhill Cranes

Chilled Autumn Mornings
Gathered Flocks of Sandhill Cranes
And Ice Veneered Ponds

Once, Upon Waking,
Dreams of Poetry And Owls
Lingered in Your Eyes

When Did Summer End?
One Cool Morning? One Full Moon?
When the Swallows Left?

Birches Silvering
Their Leaves in a Morning Breeze
With a Robin’s Song

The Swallows are Back
Singing Springtime Each Morning
Across Our Front Yard

Springtime Snow Drifts Down,
Lit by Street Lamps, Birds Predict
Melting by Sunrise

Moon has Not Yet Set
Night Still Rests in Western Skies
Robins Sing Show Tunes

Sunrise. This Spring’s First.
The Depth of Light Calls Forth Buds,
And Bird Song, and Hope
