On break

IMAG2042

Hi everyone,

I saw this gull and immediately thought of Constance Levy’s wonderful poem, “Seagull Tricks.” I contacted her to ask for permission to post the poem and I’m delighted that she agreed. It’s from A CRACK IN THE CLOUDS. Thanks, Connie

Seagull Tricks

You may think
he’s not thinking
about your sandwich
because he is looking
the other way.

You may think
he’s not scheming
because he is dreaming
and stands like an innocent
statue in gray.

And the place where he lands,
which is three feet away
seems a safe enough spot.
Well, I warn you, it’s not.

You will soon be
“un-sandwiched”
As I was today!

Constance Levy
