There are Two Birds at my Window


by Allan Kolski Horwitz

There are two birds at my window
One of wood one of stone
green stone of the rocks by the river
shone to shine with its depths
hard wood that grows in the mountain earth
scented with wind and dust and rain

the birds at my window sing day and night
