Merril is the host of dVerse today. Merril says:

*Write a poem, of any style in 44 words, not including the title. Include the word or derivative of the word, “rise”.

My offering today is a quadrille in triolet form.

Waiting Birds Rise

As northern air grows warm,
Waiting birds begin to rise.
Home, northbound, a million feathers skirt harm.
As northern air grows warm
From traveler to builder, they transform
Sticks to nests, charm their prize;
As northern air grows warm,
Waiting birds begin to rise.

  1. I never tire of the first morning I hear birdsong and know that Spring has arrived. Those tiny harbingers who find their way on the warm winds of Spring to the North are ever a welcome symbol of the end of winter.

  2. Thank you very much, Dwight. The poor birds, not enough they have to fly thousands of miles to get home, then they have to get started building a home — year after year! Us humans have it easy compared to them.
