So Many Saves


We celebrate
the whippoorwill
we saved in the garden
from the cat.
The cat we saved
from the tractor engine.
The tractor we saved
from a fire in the barn
the day we saved the cow
from the flu
brought in by a whippoorwill.
So many saves!
Save leads to save.
Life is salvation
following salvation.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
