The Foraging Ibis Bark

The foraging ibis bark.
One opens wide his beak
and emits a harsh tune:
Ack, ack, ack, AAAAH, ack,
repeats it exactly.
He meant it!

Jay Ungar (and Molly Mason and The Family Band) play Ashokan Farewell

he closes his eyes
over the notes
of his sweet violin —
haunting song of farewell
but his half-smile is bliss

Spring Has Arrived

The lorikeets are here!
With a quick shriek
two lights, bright green
dive out of the bottlebrush tree,
zap the air, skim the roof
and vanish.
