Urban Solstice Dawn

In the quiet dawning

of a winter’s morning

Blackbird pecking seed

hopping through the yellow weed

Fan-tailed pigeon flapping

swaying Willow tapping

empty basket swaying

Field mice scurry, scratching

on the rooftops high above

hear the calling of the Dove

in the gardens of the town

after the setting of the moon.
