Crack, Crack, Crack
sings sheet ice in winter when the sun shouts
and ice melts slowly with drip, drip, drip
while geese land in flurry on frozen pond.
Tweet, Tweet, Tweet
say bright birds when the first buds of Spring bloom
from apple, cherry, and promising plum
on the rolling hills of heavenly breath.
Moo, Moo, Moo
say brindled cows in drowsy summer heat
as they eat green grass and dandelion
under blue sky until haloed moonrise.
Clop, Clop, Clop,
halt, hooves of horses on rural lane
when Autumn leaves turn ocher, yellow, brown
as sun sets orange over western hills.
