Dark Wings

Just folding his wings, the handsome wood duck
among wafer-crisp cottonwood leaves.


I love to lie down weary
under the stalk of sleep
growing slowly out of my head,
the dark leaves meshing.

Wendell Berry

Terrapin and Other Poems;
Illustrated by Tom Pohrt,
Counterpoint, 2014, page 29.

This book was made of Wendell Berry poems chosen by the illustrator 
to make an beautiful and simple book for children. I think it will make a lovely holiday gift!
