Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and
feathers unto the ostrich?
...
Mystics and birds do not carry their food with them.
Those who have full faith in God are always taken care of.
Alas! in winter, dead and dark,
Where can poor Robin go?
The person or persons involved
Parading slowly through the sunlit fields
...
Swans in the winter air
A white perfection have,
The swallow leaves her nest,
The soul my weary breast;
Down came the hairy talons
and horrible poison blade
And none of the garden noticed
that fizzing, hopeless fight.
owls in the beardusky woods
ospreys
would fall like valkyries
His breast was deep and white,
cold and caressable;
his eyes were red glass,
much to be desired.
