A poet’s lament

A Voice for the Turtle

Dead birds cannot sing—
their melodies lost to winds
which rouse high towers
to turn smooth blades of hard steel
that churn songs and soft feathers.

.
What will children hear
or see? Fields without Blandings?
Forests without trees?
No songbirds. No chorus frogs.
Only a harsh hush, man-made.

.
From “Spectacle” by JC Sulzenko
