      Query
       
      I asked the birds
      who sing at night
      where they learned their songs,
      and what they sang about.
       
      They said, "We learn from
      birds who sing by day,
      but what we sing about
      is hard for us to say."
       
      "Only those with beak
      and wing can fathom joy
      in dark and doubt.
      The sky may turn to evening
      and the sun to moon,
      but we sing
      of what you do not speak -
      how night is sometimes noon,
      how any season of the soul
      can, with time, be coaxed to spring."
