Two Hangovers

Number two: I try to awaken and greet the world again

In a pine tree,
A few yards away from my window sill,
A brilliant blue jay is springing up and down, up and
down,
On a branch.
I laugh, as I see him
abandon himself
To entire delight, for he knows as well as I do
That the branch will not break.

 

James Arlington Wright, 1963
