Two reeds at water's edge, siblings
in size and suppleness, fend in wind their
all but invisible life, as miraculous as yours,
or my own: their 'Watcher in the Rye"?  No!--
but surely the Watcher in the Sky, who
made their delicate life, and ours.  Shall take
a knife from within its sheath, cordon, 
and fashion a festive braid for a funeral wreath
while wind sings for all us careless things
of accidental beauty, resigned to the eye-
less blind that do not see us?

    A thought-provoking piece. It is indeed lyrical.
