Poetry Month #11: Winds of Early Spring by Susan Aylward

Miriam's Well: Poetry, Land Art, and Beyond

Winds of Early Spring

Descansos pummeled, winds of early spring,
bait and stir those never old
a bird flies alone, what song does it sing

where spirit slipped into the unseen,
they’ll return until their stories are told
descansos pummeled, winds of early spring

mothers weep for those taken wing,
oh seeking one, the nest will grow cold
a bird flies alone, what song does it sing

grandmothers cross hearts, beads on a string,
mourning buds in purple and gold
descansos pummeled, winds of early spring

sudden kindness makes my heart sting,
and now I know, life never grows old
a bird flies alone, what song does it sing,

and when it returns, what will it bring,
current of destiny, ours to unfold
descansos pummeled, winds of early spring
a bird flies alone, what song does it sing?
