Wonder

Dedicated to the memory of Liliana Bavuso


Something told the wild geese
It was time to go
Though the fields lay golden
Something whispered “snow”

Something told the sparrow
It was time to sing
Though the stream lay frozen
Something whispered
Spring

Oh what a wonder
Oh what a sound
Seasons surrender all around


Something told the heron
It was time to stay
Though the winds were gusting
Summer was on the way

Oh what a wonder
Oh what a sight
Seasons surrender to the light


Something told the wild geese
It was time to go
