Ancient Voices

I heard the geese tonight
and I saw them in
my mind as they passed
before the moon at full
and so it starts, this
annual tug to poets, butterflies
and birds.
There! Did you hear them just
now? Again the night is filled
with the ancient cries, and as
I sleep they will carry on
as they always have,
one long
