Sardines at Whiteside Mountain

for Bob and Glenda Zahner
    
Usually
they were
there waiting
for us because
we brought sar-
dines. Riding up-
drafts and swirling
currents of air the
ravens performed
for their exotic fare
by gliding steady as
an arrow in full flight
before adjusting wing
or tail so as to execute
sudden turns or dives
with self-assured grace
... and then they ate their
well-earned tin of sardines.
