Ekphrastic poetry: Kittelsen's Woodpecker

Updated on April 29, 2012


I welcome you, my only friend

To this silence I’ve never had

The trees are protecting us from all harm and sounds

Only a sunbeam daringly enters, touching our grounds

You are so devoted to knocking at tree

Like a guest yelling “please answer me”

I open my heart and stop for a while

Let all the sounds within me entwine

My only friend, I bid you adieu

It has been nice ticking with you

The forest is vast, the road is ahead

Goodbye, I’ll melt, with silence instead
