.three pigeons.

how do they know to come back,

how

to come back? .                   i asked

steaming at central          station.

 

they were sending

eggs by post those days, and dad

sent primroses,              i am told.

 

in boxes.

 

remember the day we bought

the cat, placed in a      special

one  for                       carrying,

marked                         pigeon.

 

became his name.

 

they sent them away by train,

later

 

we imagined we saw them fly

back.
