Wild geese are calling

Wild geese are calling
and I run
to meet

Those landing
on the pond
deep in the grass

That looks inviting
to wild geese
and one

That would join them
in their flight
if it wasn't

That I haven't
the wilderness
deep inside

As wild geese
can call
to each other

And the one
they leave
