Ars Poetica - Poem by Bruce Deitrick Price

oh to uncage words
as startling as birds
naked and silken
full of song and shriek
flung into the envious air
on a wonder of wings
to spin and soar and rise
dazzling our days
with surprise

(versus the one by MacLeish; see discussion in 'The Plight of Poetry' via Google)
