Hope (Endangered)


Ask the Blackpoll Warbler,

Piping Plover, Peregrine Falcon,

Yellow-crowned Night-Heron;*

survey the one with wings.


I’m earthbound, windswept,

thunderstruck, leathershod,

unendangered, clayclod;

I can hear but I don’t sing.


Query the honey bee

nearly gone, nearly gone,

here and gone,

                         don’t ask me.
