August’s last song
It started with a lone bird
Out there in tangled clouds of lilac.
A sense of melancholy was shared by myself
And my daughter.
Was this really the last evening of summer?
The lone bird’s cry was
Taken up by others
So that soon they sounded like the honking of laughing clowns.
Before leaving, they flew into formation
Spread out neatly behind a forest of sails
As if to draw the eye to the light on the horizon
And the hope of another season.
