State Bird of Kansas

S

Meadowlark

    • intent on being

 

    • heard in spite of wind,

 

    • rises from modest nest

 

    • singing the prairie dry.

 

    • Unaware of election

 

    • to avian poet laureate,

 

    • makes allegro music,

 

    • few notes floating

 

    • in tangled air

 

    • disappearing in oblivion.

 

    • The lark composes

 

    • meadow sweetness

 

    • in counterpoint to

 

    • rattlesnake percussion

 

    • singing musical reprise

 

    • in buffalo grass

 

    and tumble weed.
