Four Poems on Animals

September 1, 2018

Scamper! Scamper!
little rabbit.
Hide in the hedges
little rabbit!

Black flash across the pond!
A waterbug or the shadow of a moth?

“Show me how
the cricket jumps!”
The boy’s eyes
shift about –
He’s thinking ….

like Schrodinger’s cat
my future is uncertain.
Unwrap the box,
pull back the curtain!

Seven Poems About Animals

July 5, 2018

A bee in the cathedral?
Get him out!
No one wants him there
but God!

the flower
seems to know
what to do!

from my door
high in the tree
I see a straw nest
my nearest neighbor.

can this mouse
help the lion?

busy people
pass them by,
but grandfather and child
love the birds.

I love to watch you dragonfly
when you’re hovering …
over there …
and not too close!

I kicked a stone
over the cliff.
A startled bird
rose up in it’s place!

Three Bird Poems

THREE BIRD POEMS

They made a bird park
with a high fence
and a sign
at the gate
“Must be able
to fly this high…”

The crow
was lit
on the
Moon side.

Birds lined up
on the top of the wall
watching the wingless
down below.

4 Poems with an Animal Theme

Poems (with an animal theme)

the little green moth
circles and circles
here and there
across the garden
I see what you’re after
I watch and watch
he’s ever closer
he knows it too
he’s just about there
and lands in a clump of
small yellow blossoms.

Mother Goose
was pedestrian
Mother Peacock
was uptown
