"Flight Path" by Betsy Mars

Flight Path

Who painted these brushstroke clouds,

pushed the leaves skittering

along the walkway, made the air loud

with ravens on the flyway?

Who flushed the whoosh from the damp

branches above, lit the sky’s lamp

warming my back? Who is flying home today,

sirens wailing a final dirge nearby?
