     In a grassy field
   Mushrooms rising overnight
     Make a fairy ring.
                       Wings a whirring blur,
       The hummingbird wears a veil
            Of shimmering gauze.

     Chattering sparrows
  Arrange themselves on a wire
    Like a string of beeds.

    Quails hunched together
    Share a warming blanket
      Of new fallen snow.

     Winter’s icy wand
  Turns cedars into maidens
   Dressed in ermine robes.

                       Like a little boat,
                  He skims along the shoreline,
                      Bobbing and bowing.
