Garden Music (a poem)

Garden Music

Green leafage and roots
with flowers and stems:
a cactus and a totem pole,
in the center of the garden.

In and above, my deep dark
earthly garden, makes for
charming music, --upon:
twilight meeting the moon.

And the birds perched,
along the houses, once in
the garden, are now settled
reconciled for the Evening.

So, much charming music
prevails, along the many rooftops,
and countless window sills,
with dark feathers, flopping

flopping wings, softly swaying,
swaying with bent heads,
to the music of the garden,
to the rhythm of the night:

in and above the garden’s eyes.
