Ancient History: Beyond the Hedge; Welcome Sounds


Welcome Sounds
Squirrels bounding on the rooftop at day break,
water running
running to the swollen river.
Crows cawing.
Gulls are calling
hackers hacking, piles of dirty snow
a snowblower running dry.
tap tap
tap tap
a flicker looking down and sees the clear spring sky
