The Crowded Town

by R.S. Stewart

From Canary Summer 2013

R.S. lives near both the Middle Willamette Watershed in Marion County, Oregon, and Silver Falls Park, ancient home to ten waterfalls.

The crowded town was once a place
Of pebbles and applause,
An acre where the only crowd
Came to the edge of a field
To watch the balloonists balancing their baskets
As beautifully as birds alighting
On their slender and delicate branches.
