Halcyons

Halcyons fly high
Over ocean wide
Two kingfishers of times yore
Seek a place to nest
Aeolus has blest
Near the cold, buffeted shore

“Time is growing nigh,”
Winter Solstice sighs.
“Winds I will becalm for thee.”
Lovers gather twigs
Moss, brown grass, and sprigs 
Build nest upon the still sea.

Eggs laid, end of quest
A fortnight of rest
Winds return and out fly four
Parents and fledglings
Soon, no longer seen
Aeolus frees squallish roar
