Joseph Ceravolo: Migratory Noon

   Cold and the cranes
Cranes in the
              wind
like cellophane tape
on a school book.
The wind bangs
the car, but I sing out loud,
               help, help
as sky gets white
  and whiter and whiter and whiter
Where are you
 in the reincarnate
           blossoms of the cold?

Joseph Ceravolo (1934-1988): Migratory Noon, c.  1965, from Collected Poems (2012)
