graduation poem

she must go back, she said
there was never a sound beside the wood but one
darkest, strangest mystery
of sun nor stars
glooms of the live-oaks
up from the south at break of day
and with the humming bird
simply speaking
the ancient songs
weak-winged is song
pharaoh, king of egypt's land
risen from the dead
a flying word from here and there
sitting in his rocker waiting for your tea
