P. 74

  bird meets his shadow
bird meets his shadow
black as soot with rainbow glimmers from his quest to bring us fire
and relieve us from the cold
bird meets his shadow undeterred
he is wise enough to know this is the way of the world
day after day
he flies he circles
both harbinger of ill tidings and messenger of salvation
bird meets his shadow he swoops away
again
I follow his progress with a heart both thankful and envious
bird meets my shadow and we are one
