                                 After the helicopters leave
                                 how I love the sounds of birds
                                 their songs like an orchestra
                                 more beautiful than Albert’s Hall
                                 when they return after the gunshots
                                 the smoke and noise of night
                                       the white pipers and plovers
                                       migrating back to the north
                                       in the morning calm

  1. I like the way Vernon uses calming imagery to (almost) make us forget the helicopters and gunshots.
