Poetic priority

Nothing is more urgent before school
than to stand and watch a robin
come near - one hop at a time
into our fountain (his pool)
take a drink, wash himself
no trace of fear in his eye.
Nothing is more urgent, ever
than to be still and
watch trust (in feathered form)
come to a place provided
and bathe itself in grace.
