Curlew, Screaming Lady

Curlew Cry,

Screaming Lady

How do you confuse the two

If you know the curlew Cry

You know it’s not the screaming Lady

But

For those who don’t

Fear strikes deep

Heart rushes

Eyes open

Where to launch the rescue

“Don’t be silly,”

A wise man says

“It’s just a curlew”

Heart relaxes

Until

The next time

A curlew’s call

Catches you

Unexpected.
