The scarlet ibis

No ordinary search brings you to the cage of the Scarlet Ibis. He is a confection beside the mud-splattered ostrich,

a startling bloom in the brittle vines of winter.

To see his color is to complete the eye . . .

coral, pink, white,

immaculate, intense, flawless.

Now, world,

astonish me, if you can.
