Janet Frame

On reading her novel Towards Another Summer


Migrating bird spreads rested wing,
grows strong in heart and yearns to sing
towards home of seasonal warmth.
Where sun aplenty brings rebirth,
anxiety no longer clings.

Recognizing her lovely wings,
Identity gives a clear ring,
transcending gravity’s old earth
– migrating bird.

Expressively her writing sings,
as pages soar with meanings ring,
revealing connection and warmth
in every paragraph’s sweet breath.
Now I know a feathered sibling
– migrating bird.
