Etourneau de noël, a Christmas starling

divés 25 de deceme de 2009, per  Annie Lesca

A poem by Michael Edwards, from To Kindle the Starling, 1972, First and Last Things

and a photo of blazing feathers, taken par Eric S. in our garden, Friday afternoon,

a she-starling so they say.

...
together
but for
seconds only as
each
makes for a
spot to
comfortably
hook each
toe
to a twig.

...

A black
starling
swayed on a winter branch

at a sudden
sun-shot

flaring
green and red.

...

Above our talk
in the high cold
miracle
brilliants
the blazing stars
the night makes
visible.

A Noël,
tels un vol d’étourneaux affamés,
On se retrouve tous
pour festoyer ;

Puis chacun retourne bien vite
s’agripper à sa branche,
On n’sait jamais,
des fois qu’elle s’échapperait
en notre absence.
