The Warbler of Verrazano (A Poem)

A lone warbler sings

despite the drone of cars

across a span of steel;

he sings from his on wild

patch of bramble laying

his claim ages before

the coming of Giovanni

da Verrazano from Italy

to a very wild North America.

The warbler will always sing, even if the man made structures force him to be there. This was a beautiful work!
