Georgia Spring

“Georgia Spring,” is a poem I wrote in 2006. I hope that my love of nature is apparent in this poem, as it is in my book Follow Your Dog – the dog being a metaphor for wild nature – published earlier this year.

April Morning
Bright with birds.

Fledgling bluebird holds a cricket.  Blue grosbeak warbles, orchard oriole answers.

Pine woods
Red bellied woodpecker drums, crested flycatcher cherups.

Field of new corn
Indigo bunting sings from the only tree top.

Redwing caught up in song, kingbird swept up in insects.

Killed. Armadillo, possum, gaudy rainbow snake.
Safe. Baby box turtle crosses.
