Snake

A snake sings at night
Silent in sunlight, yes
But, watched by silver stars
It sashays to a stream, sits still,
Lifts its serpent head
And sounds a single note
Of such sweet sadness
That beasts weep
And earthly rumblings hush
And creatures of the sky stop,
Stunned,
To drop like spiders
From silken strings
