Throughout the Day

Throughout the day

they will swoop and perch,

pick and shell,

scattering the small husks

on snow long past its prime.

 

With the names,

chickadee,

gray-slated junco,

blue jay,

cardinal,

mourning dove,

titmouse,

and sparrow.

 

Whispering each name

in darkness still,

it feels like I am singing.IMG_4788
