New Girl

A  Poem by Donal Mahoney

Light ambrosia of the sun
is over all of her.
She is shy

the way the flicker
pink of rabbit eye
is shy. Within the

almond hair, cliffs
of cheek round in, where
unifies her chin.

There, two birds meet
before they carry out her smile.

Editor’s note: from his poetry collection, ”The Gravedigger’s Son,” http://booksonblog12.blogspot.com/
