Eiderdown 2

Eiderdown 2

Cheering the clouds on their way

I plant kisses on their lovers,

making amends for our short stay

and to comfort the cold in their bones,

caught from years of cursed Octobers

that I could not insufflate.

A little bird begs for my breath

to aid its way back home,

but I cannot change the course of Mother Nature,

just help to raise him up,

in the hope his flying fight defeats

the impending dark of a night alone.

I collect the autumn leaves to my chest,

longing for all to be content

with life and its changing colours.
