Marjorie Sadin



 After so many years,
 I am struck by the chirping of birds
 in the woods like tremolos of flutes.
 Easily startled,
 you astonish me.
 Your voice is like the sound of a tree falling.
 My voice is wind in the grass.
 And that crane winging across the water—
 a harbinger of what will be.
