The Red-Tail Outside the Third Story Window

The wind throws the hawk a gusty blow.

Her outspread wings steer her through the low

Troughs of airy waves, feathers skim tree tips.


Now high on crest of winter's cold breath

She bears the brunt in her span's breadth


And drinking the draft of chill death she

Shakes its grip, forever now to fly free.
