Subject(s): Herons

Gaunt, lonely bird,
I know your haunts.
I, too, search the world for beauty,
And find myself at twilight in a wilderness,
Haunted by remembered cries,
Defiled by ooze;
I, too, find my sustenance deep in mud.
Alone in black everglades,
I cry out with desire to climb
To crimson skies;
To dye my chilled heart in flame.
Why must I always fall, impotent,
While you
Lift wings?
