“From Behind the Pane I Watch Her”

by Edythe Haendel Schwartz

shinny up the beech,
no sound but the soft crack of branch

where her kite is caught. Feet
trust the bough will not break when she frees

the tail, unknots the line. How swiftly
fingers ease the twine, release the snag; the agony

is mine alone. Dusk. So hard to see
where tree becomes child or child becomes tree.
