Snow Melt

the river has risen
covering her marshy islands

don’t worry, good geese

the cattails will flower soon
blackbirds will nest, and so will you

    1. Right. There were two of them looking down from a high bank on the flooded marsh with a few cattails sticking up where their islands used to be. They were so....so...thoughtful looking.
