Bird Watcher by Jane Yolen & illus by Ted Lewin

Who loves Canadian Geese? This girl. I adore them.
Bird Watcher
Across the earless
face of the moon
a stretch of Vs
honks homeward.
From the lake
laughs the last joke
of a solitary loon.
Winter silences us all.
I will miss
these conversations,
the trips at dawn
and dusk,
where I listen carefully,
then answer
only with my eyes.
