CRANE CALLS

To shamelessly entice you to visit my blog, Quid Nunc? and read my two-part post on our trip down the Rio Grande to visit the wintering Sandhill Cranes, I offer you this poem by Judith Roderick, from her book Poems From The Cranes Two.  



Crane Calls

Crane calls.
My heart
Answers.
My eyes
Scan
The skies,
Spotting short,
Undulating flight lines,
Long necks
Preceding long trailing legs.
They come
Again,
Gliding over me.
I am engaged,
Enthralled,
Transported.
What century is this?
What lifetime is this?
Timelessness.
I am so grateful
We are
Both
Still
Here.
