Hallucinated


Beak yellow
Spotty the feathers
(Gold on black)
Tail is short
Head small
Legs funny
(As if in a stove
A straw
Partly charred,
Thin feathers are black,
Part orange; set to light
And partly turned to ash
Hanging on as claws

An expert
Looks for worms
In the grass
Each blade wearing hat;
Fresh dews

Early spring
After rain
No snail
Absent worms

The vegans
Sparrows and their kin
Too small; redder head
On the grass, search for seed

In love with beauty
I look around
Look at nymphs; Aphrodite,
Man-made art
And kind girls and their site
(Who are fooled or are bought)
With wonder I am lost.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
