Quote of the Day:
And once out walking at night
I stumbled across the speckled body
of a small hawk,
the hasp of its wings closed.
One note, one note.
It sings in the rills between words,
It sleeps between leaves in a book,
gathers like dust on the piano.
I heard it once on a green hill
in Aberdeen in short puffs of wind
stirring the new grass among stones.
Prayer could not alter it
nor clods breaking upon bronze.
Henry Carlile, Merlin
