“Migrating Geese” by Celia Berrell

Spring in the Arctic

came two weeks early

and Barnacle geese

had to race to keep up.


No more stopping

for rests on their journey.

Three thousand k’s

is a humungous hop.


They cruise at the speed

we’d drive through town

with short bursts of

ninety-five k’s or so.


Marathon flyers

in feathers and down,

with climate changed seasons

just watch them go!
