Carol Louise Moon


All that is beautiful,
deer in the world
and meadows, too.
There was a bird
who flew only once
and then no more.
Winds that sweep
through the channel—
the same winds
that keep birds airborne—
winds which form sandstone
sculptures. I know of these
winds which form sandstone,
that keep birds airborne.
The same winds
through the channel—
winds that sweep,
and then no more.
Who flew only once?
There was a bird
and meadows, too.
Deer in the world—
all that is beautiful.
