In Flight

In Flight

Joan McNerney

Shy autumnal bird
did you brush against the moon
to get that pale down?  

A tree waves wooing
birds who fly from branch to branch
looking for a home. 

Congregations of wrens
winging off to choral practice
stop at bird feeders first.  

An outdoor concert.
Which is sweeter, the flute
or bird song in woods? 

Sparrows recite litanies
in wood. Trees
greener every rainfall
their leaves growing longer.
