         I gaze in wonder
         at your beauty.
         Imprisoned in
         your glass cage.

         Lifeless now,
         your corpse on show
         for coffee breakers 
         to idle away a few moments.
         Only I understand 
         how you soared over oceans
         you solitary, wandering bird.

        My albatross.

    this is just wonderful. BTW, I can't believe how many of your latest posts I have missed. I keep thinking I will soon arrive at the last poem of yours I commented to. Crossing my fingers!! I like knowing that I have seen every one of your poems.

    Were you in a museum recently? I get that idea from reading your very descriptive words.

    Not recently but I have visited Albert the Albatross quite a lot and wished to see an Albatross in the wild. I do not want these wonderful birds to become extinct. How terrible that future generations may not see these beautiful creatures.
