Retreat — A Poem


“Rose” — C.Birde, 2/18


I will retreat

to a rose-covered cottage,

pull the fern door

closed and

draw the ivied curtains.

And only those

who hold birdsong

in their mouths

and wear the breeze’s

honeysuckled breath

in their hearts

may enter.

Only those

who bear




— C.Birde, 2/18
