Shrieking Bird (my heart for Boston)

Shriek!

Shriek! (Photo credit: jonasflanken)

Shrieking bird,
piercing morning reflections;
Why, little bird, have you changed your song?
Your melody was so sweet.
Now all we hear
is the shrill sound of alarm,
The world as a whole is the same,
But for you and your world, little bird,
Everything changed!

-Donald R. Sansbury, 2013
