This year seems to be happy
as it nears its end-
I heard its golden oriole voice-
saw its marigold-dance
in a crazy North wind-
it still retains the carnival spirit-
it walked past me the other day
looking at the pale sun feather-
throwing me a misty smile
it whispered of its return
in a new look-
I now treasure its breath
of fresh oranges-
