The soundtrack of late summer

The birds have hushed most of their songs.
The fields and woods seem silent

until we realize that a tireless melody
is throbbing and humming and buzzing

along every blade of grass or spanning leaf,
as if the heartbeat of one sentient being




The Lark shares fictional short stories and poetry
