Where No Crow Flies


Like a lark in a cage
—Like a shot
Between the eyes—
Where an old woman dies
In the silence of birds
Where no crow flies

Flies may be flies
Where no crow flies
Where an old woman dies
In the silence of birds.

Darkness is hitched
To the darkness of words
In the darkness a stitch
Of the silence of birds.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
