Where Snow Geese Go

Better Large-These birds are crazy! Closer up here-Thousands upon thousands flock to a southern pond and field in Arkansas. They are so beautiful and dramatic, it was a wonderful experience to be in the middle of all of this, at just the right place, just the right time. 0016

WHERE SNOW GEESE GO

(JHWatkins)

 

The wild north wind spoke steadily

Once more,

Of siren dreams

And Southern shores,

 

While in the circle many knew

What paths of wandering

To pursue.

 

By flight-ed fields of distant

Stars,

And feather-furied

Beating hearts.

 

Why do you depart my friends?

What song do you hear

That moves you so?

What force do you sense?

What rhythm do you know?

 

That stirs you-guides you

Through the night,

On wing-ed hope

Of distant delight?

 

To capture our soul

In mystery-

Where snow geese go

The heart soars free.
