A Caution For Love Poetry
Born ignorant, as the hormones activate
the other love, huge as the universe,
we learn with all our senses each bright letter
of a new emotional alphabet, and shout
our wondrous discoveries in deathless verse,
forgetting it's been done before, and better.
Prince of gamebirds and master of crooked flight, the snipe
the sea at dusk brought in as prisoner
looked at me with bright obsidian eyes
gently refused food and clumsy care
and was dead by morning.
I had shot many like it in my day.
I had prayed this little one would fly away.
