For many years, my poetfriend Elena wrote under the pseudonym of "barn swallow."




The Barn-Swallow Poet

bicycling down Milwaukee's

Hank Aaron Trail

with a thermos of tea

& a brain full of poems

she shines the light of peace

upon bickering sparrows

& red-winged blackbirds

& fretful butterflies
