Early Morning Exaltation

Up

with the lark’s

early morning exaltation

of exclamation

curlicues and marks

that punctuate the sky

thrillingly trilling high

above open fields

and sand dunes

extravagant tunes

elaborate mating calls

the very voice of spring

suspended

somewhere

overhead

then

slowly

descending

.
