Breast and belly moss-covered ruby-crowned king
seeking water, identical villages instantaneous photography wrested from the chaos
gold around the fane or the vast space of valleys and lakes
they came with their beaks full of worms the male brought a dragon
one call, after a wet August, a single, sweet, clear, flutelike note,
as in a second spring, and as singing sounds again and again everywhere
