MERLIN - Miriam Sagan (U.S.A.)




-         Miriam Sagan (U.S.A.)


we were just
hanging around
not doing
much of anything
to help the helpless
world along

then a merlin
perfectly itself
ended on the hoop
of the raised bed
dormant in its winter sleep

come quick, I called you
and you came
to admire the unexpected
and as we exclaimed
about our luck
the elegant hawk
took off
and we went back
to the usual
afternoon’s life
