songbird did sing…

Song sparrow

one summer
five evenings in a row
she sang to me
the sweetest melody
that I probably ever heard
facing me
like an opera star
on stage
no more that 15 feet away
in direct alignment
from my front row seat
the mugo pine needles
danced with joy
intense sadness
drained from my heart
it was like a visit
from some celestial being
and surely as the Cosmos
must control such things
I’ll never forget those nights
sweet songbird did sing…
