Winter flight

When, restless as any other,
she forsakes that statue
too old and cold
to march,

where will
that poor soul be?

And what, then, of we?

The Valley

Young men out hunting stand
high on a mountain ledge,
survey the valley below.
How many days, what direction go
to cross it?

Across the valley old men sit
on ledges, looking down,
remembering the valley below.
How many days and for what purpose
did we cross it?

A familiar echo;
a companion;
a name;

forever flown;
forever back again.

Thanks, Gary.
