New Muse – Chad Norman

Birch grove – Isaac Levitan

To observe the gentleness,
how the peanut-half is taken
from fingers of a trusted hand,

she holds it with fierce paws
to feed today’s autumnal hunger,

efficient jaws cause a chopping beat
to accompany a leaf’s journey,

through periodic creaks a breeze
teaches the birch tree how to play.
