David Ferry, “The Birds,” Boston University, 2011

This poem appears in Ferry’s latest collection, Bewilderment: New Poems and Translations, which just won the National Book Award. Ferry, now in his late 80s, has said of the book’s title: “It’s not entirely personal. I think everybody’s slightly off the rails. Me too, but I don’t mean it’s my exclusive territory. Yours and mine.”


*Based on a sample of one, my son Luke, who’s home for the holiday.
