The Mute Swans

by Don Welch

One by one a hundred mute swans
were snowing the lake with silence.

Turkey Vulture

by Don Welch

Ugly, it looks like bad prose,
and flies as if the whole world
were made of ball-bearings.

from: A BRIEF HISTORY OF FEATHERS, A Slow Tempo Press, Lincoln, Nebraska, l996
