        THE BERMUDA LONGTAIL

A bird unknown to me came to visit each day…

all of the other winged ones would just fly…

the one unknown was different…

he would hover above me…looking at me…

I thought it odd at first…

every morning, seemingly the same one…

he would look at my mast…and then…

at me…

I spoke to him…

he would hover and stare…as if…

he listned…yet…

said nothing…

As I drew near my destination of Bermuda…

more would come each day…

sometimes three at a time…

flying around my little She…hovering above me…

Upon my arrival on this land, I found…

the unknown one to me was the bird of this land…the Bermuda Longtail.
