Two birds spiral,
Then one races after another,
And they dart through the air.
When their chase is done,
One stretches its slender neck and dives,
The other pumps its strong wings and rises.
In one acrobatic movement, a circle forms.
Yet the miracle lasts only for a moment.
They circle once more and land,
Rustling their wings.
The sounds of the world return.
