Lone goose overhead
Sky leaden with hints of cream
Snow later today

Geese rise from the swamp,
circle the schoolyard two times,
then settle back down.

Went down to the lake —
it was sea-like with white caps;
two geese braved the chop.

Walked ’round Beebe Lake
— geese and mallards were paired up
and guarding nest sites.

Lone goose flies due west —
honk . . . honk . . . honk — he calls for the
rest of his geese V flock.

Last night, the geese rose
in swarms over the field then
formed Vs and flew on.

Geese fly just above
my house — honking sounds like a
pack of hunting hounds.

Geese fly low over
the house — wavering lines of
honking, baying birds.

A lone goose flies and
honks — looking for the many
Vs on their way south.
