An acquaintance asked me if I still missed the north. "Everyday". I replied.

This is a recasting of an earlier poem "OSPREY"


Once more I hear the osprey cry
My name across the northern sky
But I am far away from there
Osprey searches night and morn
for all that she claims as northern born
I remain in my prison here.

The gale that sweeps to me her call
binds me here in this damp hall
Shackled to a stinking southern river

Perhaps in death northward I shall roam
in that green paradises to make my home
Close to the osprey that calls to me there

Once more I hear the osprey cry
my name across the northern sky

Lovely sentiments; I can feel your yearning for the north country. I can relate. That's where I was born and spent most of my childhood. Love and peace to you, John,
