Day 13

Vespers

Written by Carol McKay

Coo, pigeon, coo!
Your feathery chest
nestled in my palms
heats my hands
though tonight’s wintry light
is dim and the rain’s
speckled with hail.

My lady’s on the ice
in her lamb’s wool coat,
white on white,
fingers folded, snug
in her swan down muff,
while you and I...

Go, pigeon. Take to the sky.
White dove and snow feathers fly!
