Feather Lights
By Carl Sandburg
MACABRE and golden the moon opened a slant of light.
A triangle for an oriole to stand and sing, “Take me home.”
A layer of thin white gold feathers for a child queen of gypsies.
So the moon opened a slant of light and let it go.
So the lonesome dogs, the fog moon, the pearl mist, came back.        5
