Jenny McBride – Meadowlark
Meadowlark sings between
The off-ramp and the on-ramp
Sings the prairie tune
Will nest here
Because this is the closest thing
To a prairie that’s left
Cars, but at least they keep moving
And I have to ask
Meadowlark, what are you saying?
That you will nest here
And next year
Meadowlarks will sing in this grassy wedge again
Waiting for our highways to disappear?
February-March 1998 Earth First!
