Phoebe’s Time

April 10, 2013


Recently I visited Hemlock Crossing County Park near Holland, MI where a phoebe was working on a nest just above the entrance to the nature center.  I have a new book coming out soon: Between Sweetwater and Sand . Here is a poem from it:

Phoebe’s Time

What year
does the phoebe
think it is?

She thinks

it’s the best year

for a nest

above

our cottage door—

no care for

what year.

She loves the time

she is in.
