You could have a big dipper   

Gifts by Regine Ebner




I have sent you parachutes to wish on

legends to believe in

stars for navigation

and a golden telescope with wings

I have sent you wanderlust canyons

monuments of gypsies

and partial eclipses of the moon

Have you read my hieroglyphs?

Found these treasures in the glade?

You have, I think.

Because I received an eagle

with a branch of twilight

an owl with a fable of want

and a leopard with rosettes of jubilation

I accept your gifts

and send back a candle

with a burning flame
