Extinction

Unfolding fell the canopy of silken wings,

catching air they spread their span

then like a storm which great change brings

they scorched the earth betrayed by man.

 

and when they took to their ascent

to leave what once was all that was,

no living thing asked where they went

nor mourned one day for what was lost.
