THE BIRDS, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: The world begins again
Last Line: And the dripping grass.
Subject(s): Blackbirds

The world begins again!
Not wholly insufflated
the blackbirds in the rain
upon the dead topbranches
of the living tree,
stuck fast to the low clouds,
notate the dawn.
Their shrill cries sound
announcing appetite
and drop among the bending roses
and the dripping grass.
