Selected Poems

One for the Dipper

(Cinclus mexicanus)



Tim McNulty

 

To be as sure

& light-footed among rapids

as the dipper:



slate-gray puff

of feather & song

twiglike dusky feet



dip, dip, on a sudsing rock

cheeps off upstream

no higher than spray...



one yesterday—

drinking delicate little

beakfuls



from a boulder

mid-Dungeness

wild with three weeks rain.
