'When Did You Last See Castagno?' a poem by Peter Porter

Welcome to the feast, piccolo pasero,
A feast that never ends, of loyalty and treachery.
Two are sold for a farthing, little sparrow

How did you get in, confront the tracery
Beyond the boarded-up high window
To fly so gaily past the painted sky?

'When Did You Last See Castagno?' a poem by Peter Porter
