Life dumped her in a city
Emptied free of friendly faces
Architecture daunting skyward
but lacked the lines of grace
As she wandered thru the side streets
A feather in the pulsing crowds
The isolation grabbed her
And spun her head around
She sensed she should be elsewhere
Exactly where-- she didn't know
when a beam of sun burst into song
with a sea breeze-- sweet and low
Above her head there perched a songbird
Gray as the city's smile
His eyes blazed into hers
Opaque with city guile.
He nodded toward the North
Took flight without a sound
In a flicker of a moment
She was seaward bound.
