Celestial Bird: The Poem

by Ethel Mortenson Davis

One
became caught
last night
in my net.

This morning
I untangled him—
eyes true and bright,
magnificent iridescent feathers,
and a warm beating heart
that stayed in my hand
as I threw him up into the air
so he could
continue his flight
across the universe.
