Knysna Loeries

The birds they sang
At the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don’t dwell on what
Has passed away
Or what is yet to be…
― Leonard Cohen

knysna loerie

he cackled in the trees,
and i asked him to stay.

he said he came to tell me “it is a brighter day”..

his feathers were so bright,
he put on a display,
and for a while he darted about,
and then he went away..

he left a little trace that vanquished all dismay,
i knew it was a magical thing,
a quiet hip hooray..
