yodeling loons

mikemint 1979 (ca)



According to the myth
of the harvest reaper
A giant red moon appears.
every twenty-seven years
Over blue lakes and shallow lagoons
Over faithful flocks of yodeling loons
Over the peaceful shores and white dunes
Across the Cameroons
You can hear the tune of the yodeling loon.
every twenty-seven years under the giant red moon.
