Lift

What lifts the spirit?
What lifts the Gull and the Tern?
What lifts the soul?

The spirit flies because of
what circles the leaves in the stairwell.

There is something that passes
through a hollow bone
to call in the allies
that we enlist on our journeys.

Far out on the horizon something
lifts the huge swells on the lake.

What lifts the flames in the stone
fireplace other than the wood which
exhausts itself in burning the frozen air.
