Bird Of The Small Hours. - Poem by Cheryl McDonnell

When the air was silent
And the trees slept still
No wind a whispering
It’s sullen winter chill
A song cuts the silence
Into ribbons of hope
Dancing in the crescent’s light
Keeping me afloat.

    Dear fellow Cheryl. In your poem you don't mention any bird (only in the Title) . But I can hear it, flying and singing. Thanks for sharing. I give it high a grade. And I offer you my poem I offer to you my new poems THE OTHER BIRD, EROS-PTEROS. You may grade them (or other poems you may like) . Thanks
