Carl Sandburg - Calls

BECAUSE I have called to you
as the flame flamingo calls,
or the want of a spotted hawk
is called—
  because in the dusk
the warblers shoot the running
waters of short songs to the
homecoming warblers—
  because
the cry here is wing to wing
and song to song—
  
  I am waiting,
waiting with the flame flamingo,
the spotted hawk, the running water
warbler—
  waiting for you.
