Hermit Song

Verlie Burroughs is a west coast writer from Vancouver Island.

Hermit Thrush

Hermit Thrush

Hermit song so longing,
evening soliloquy,
filters through the Alder woods
as I pass this way.

Jangled nerves, shot through
with grief.
Your winged airs bring relief.

Flute like, singular tones
softly sweetly play.
Change me, rearrange
my day.
