                        *      *      *

Go now my song,

go swallowing skyward,

high-arcing,

fork-tailed.

Zoom rolling
and banking
till you find her –

she who could hear you

and laugh.


Then swoop,

vivid flier,

my bright-

speedy shadow,

trailing swift breezes,

swooshing

close-curling

by her lap.


You and she can decide

if you tickle or bother.

Either way

you’ll still be my song.
