The difference of touch: in D minor KV 466 and Variations on a theme of Paganini

     the robin hops from the tips of the rose bush

                                                                              spilling snow dust

sprinkling skeins of early dew

                                                                      dusting with its uppity tail fan

                                                               a caterpillar

                                                      softly dousing concertina

 

                 then it trips up the clothesline

                                                      stops and grips it in its claws

sways and balances with its tail fanning out

 

          chirps clucks tweets

                                     and repeats itself

all the way down again

                                     and up the scale                 

 

   comes back once more to skip a note or two

 

                  and tumbles

      sweeps past the old toy bicycle leaning against the wire fence

 

 

the claw marks hardly visible on the spray of frost-like snow on the balustrade

 

  light  ephemeral  peripatetic

 

  the dulcet flexions rising and falling on the tympana without breath of motion

 

                                             or vibration

 

crisp  colliding notes  rising and falling

 

as the first tentative drops of drizzle before the rain

 

                  the robin gone to sing full throttle on wing
