Birds, Songs, and Longings


1.
As we near the lake,
geese arc over the water,
honking a greeting.
 
 
2.
Settling on her nest
at the water’s edge, a duck
keeps her egg clutch warm.
 
 
3.
Rippling mountain stream,
who composed the song you sing?
Surely not the crow!
 
 
4.
Drifting and gliding
over the ocean’s surface,
seagulls hunt for fish.
 
 
5.
Midwinter longing—
if I had wings like a dove,
I’d fly far away.
