Loveless talons (Red Kite)

You circle low, and wing-out wide
With eyes that darken savage days
I watch you leave, all bitter sloe
With loveless talons; sigh and wait

On frozen ground, the pale-rime lie
Of shattered tongues of water, slow
You keep your secrets guarded well
A heart of lust; a silver mind.
