barn owl

today is the day,
how sweetly it comes,
the emerging swell, tears soft cascade.

this is the day of flowers laid,
two bunches, two graves
eyes will be raised,
calling out some gentle praise.

we wonder why they are taken away.

today is the day,
and no man is less afraid,
than i,
it is too early for daffodils,
and yet they rise.

the barn owl swept across the land,
up each arc, barely there,
like me, a visitor just for a time,
a memory, fleeting, warm homely fires,
he is a beauty,
and for the moment, mine.
