Watching the City


Cover:  Cityscape

in newleaf magazine

{mooblock=Leaf, Bloom, Blackbird}

Never mind, the days have lengthened already
to almost summer-height
and on every tree's highest branch
or up, up on the aerial
there's a bright-beaked songster
reminding us, day without end,
of the small secret joys. Listen close,
whisper like the leaves
newly greening.
