Birdwatching III

Bluer than sapphire
Singing from a budding tree
Indigo bunting.

Hermit Thrush

Ethereal song
Liquid notes that spiral up
Vanish into air.


Robin, cardinal, finch
All singing in the same tree
No – one mockingbird!


Shaggy starlings buzz
Clack and rattle, hum and squeak
Each a one-bird band.


Red-winged blackbirds call
Trilling, thrilling “o-ka-lee”
Waking up the marsh.


Waterfalls of song
Splendid in his russet vest
First robin of spring.


Warm rain’s percussion
Wind whistling through power lines
Season change’s song.
