New Poem: Dawn Chorus



Dawn Chorus

Ok! Alright! I hear you!
I know the light has come
again, little sparrow…
did you think, perhaps
it mightn’t? We talk
in a very superior way
of bird-brains
and scoff mockingly,
at your joy-song
at each dawn-break
as if you thought
it was some
daily miracle that
the light has come again…
But the idiocy is
all ours, grumpy
in our morning beds,
not to see
this ordinary wonder
at each dawn-break
and sing out to
each other from
