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 George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
