(Listen To The Night) (from Listen Series)


Listen to the night-
screech between the stars;
moonbeams screaming,
taunt strings
on celestial lyres...

It's the owl,
playing for his meal
while dancing field mice
choose partners on a wheel...

Don't they know
that owl's are cunning;
faster in air
than field mice running?

Round and round they dance-
a shadow crosses the sky;
stars that where born
in a twirling glance
now gone with a careless eye....
