A quivering lyric
plummeting, plunging;
trilling tune toward
meadow nest!

A warble in wind
tumbling toward field;
feathers rumbling,
trill lingers.

A trumpeter’s tune
melodious melody;
true herald
of bright skies

A caroler’s call,
seized then snatched;
swallowed in firmament.
Skylark higher, higher still!

“Your lovingkindness, Oh Lord, reaches to the heavens, Your faithfulness to the skies.”

Psalms 36:5

    So much gorgeous sound here; this begs to be read aloud, multiple times.


  4. Lovely. Yo have captured the skylark’s fluttering ascent. I wish we had them here. I think they have all be eaten…

    You’ve made wonderful use of sound and alliterationin your quadrille. I especially love a ‘quivering lyric’ and a ‘warble in wind’.
