A Poem by William G. Davies, Jr.

The Feeder

I open the door,
the birds skitter away
even though I hold
a bowl of seed,
for all they know
I may be harm
approaching silently
the way peace
can sometimes lull.

William G. Davies, Jr. has published in numerous literary reviews such as The Cortland Review, Wilderness House Review, Gloom Cupboard and most recently, Miller's Pond and Absinthe.  He lives happily with his wife on ten acres in rural Pennsylvania.
