THE LAUGHTER OF THE LOON

The secrets of remote lagoon
From morning's blush of dawn,
Till rise of eve's nocturnal moon
Sung by her eerie song.

Such wonderment from wint'ry surd,
Soliloquy's mere tune.
Grand jubilance in summer's heard -
Uncommon sounds the loon.

Bespeckled pinions, grace in flight,
Resplendent is her plume.
Bemusing splash to see her light
Cavort about the flume.

Her serenade's a proud regale,
A songbird so unique.
How wondrous her falsetto wail
Reechoing mystique.

I'll not divulge the secret song
Of this remote lagoon.
I'd rather hearken years along
The laughter of the loon.
