Snapped is the fully stretched bow;
Broken is the carriage;
Finally, no pretense.

Yellow-Hammer Woodpecker

performed as above but also with rayon multicolored top

You were my best friend
When I was a small child
Before I got a Dog.
I called you "Mr. Red Ear."
Since then, I've heard stories about
Why your ear is red.
Christ's crucifixion.
You were there?
Or maybe you are Christ.
The humble carpenter sings his simple prayers
For me to Himself.
