List the birds that also feel sadness by Patric Nuttell
Crested Shelduck. Javan Lapwing. Yellow-pilled pintail.
Laughing Owl. Horse Field’s Babbler. Cuban Solitare.
The crows that gift a girl a copper earing found near
the Au Sable River, buried by smoothe bank-rock
For who knows how long. The corvids brings beads
And bottle caps until one day, like the girl, they vanish.
