"Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all." Emily Dickinson

Poem of the month:

March

Bird feeder’s

     snow-cap

          sliding

                off

Spring

      stood there

            all body

 

Head

        blown off

              (war)

 

showed up

       downstream

 

October

       is the head

           of spring

 

Birch, sumac

       before

             the blast

 

Lorine Niedecker
