Mockingbirds Analysis

This morning

two mockingbirds

in the green field

were spinning and tossingthe white ribbons

of their songs

into the air.

I had nothingbetter to do

than listen.

I mean this

seriously.In Greece,

a long time ago,

an old couple

opened their doorto two strangers

who were,

it soon appeared,

not men at all,but gods.

It is my favorite story--

how the old couple

had almost nothing to givebut their willingness

to be attentive--

but for this alone

the gods loved themand blessed them--

when they rose

out of their mortal bodies,

like a million particles of waterfrom a fountain,

the light

swept into all the corners

of the cottage,and the old couple,

shaken with understanding,

bowed down--

but still they asked for nothingbut the difficult life

which they had already.

And the gods smiled, as they vanished,

clapping their great wings.Wherever it was

I was supposed to be

this morning--

whatever it was I saidI would be doing--

I was standing

at the edge of the field--

I was hurryingthrough my own soul,

opening its dark doors--

I was leaning out;

I was listening.
