the Angel with black wings

an Angel with black wings appeared
dancing through the roses
as she passed each rose greeted her
with favor and anticipation
a soft breeze made her wings flutter
and she giggled at the feeling
she danced over to the pond
and the koi came to the top of the water
and swam among the lilys
in jubliant surrender
to the Angel with black wings
she flapped her wings
and sat up on the highest branch
of the old oak tree
next to a nest of robins
and they chirped their baby chirps
and their mother flew to them
but first made a stop on the head of the Angel
leaves sprung forth from the branches in the tree
although it was autumn
and the leaves were already falling
the Angel with black wings
flew down to the ground and there caught a butterfly
in her hand which was held open
but the butterfly did not leave
but rather pranced in her hand
she saw a little boy picking flowers
for his mommy who was sitting a distance away
she walked along with him and then he skipped
and she skipped and he whistled and she whistled
and they giggled in unison
as she flew up to the heavens she called to the little boy
and said “always remember not all Angels have white wings”
