Audobon (from New Goose) -- Lorine Niedecker

Tried selling my pictures.  In jail
twice for debt.  My companion
a sharp, frosty gale.

            In England, unpacked
them with fear:
must I migrate back
to the woods unknown, strange
to all but the birds
I paint?

Dear Lucy, the servants here
move quiet
as kildeer.
