The small black dogis tied to the porch swing to keep her from the river.
Crows, many, in the distancecomplain in loud, quarrel-some voices.
Bird chatter slurs together in an under-tow of chittering.
Nearby,a red-headed, solitary finch calling, sweetly callingfrom the lilac tree.
Lightslowly leaves the sky.
