all you small-winged things…

butterfly sm IMG_6420

all you small-winged things of summer,
you flighting crickets in starred
cathedrals chanting psalms
beneath your leafy pews

all you sweet-furred creatures
gracing the sweet green shadows
under dark-limbed spruces
enchanting the August moon,

all you fragile, all you gentle
butterflied tides delighting
asters in the purple noon

all you gratefully athrive,
arise in quiet gesture –
it is joy to be alive
