Calls

Calls

BECAUSE I have called to you
As the flame flamingo calls,
Or the want of a spotted hawk
Is called-
because in the dusk
The warblers shoot the running
Waters of short songs to the
Homecoming warblers-
because
The cry here is wing to wing
And song to song-

I am waiting,
Waiting with the flame flamingo,
The spotted hawk, the running water
Warbler-
waiting for you.


Poem Calls - Carl Sandburg
