On the morning of the Summer solstice

On the morning of the Summer solstice
there is just enough magic
as the day breaks
for sunlight to pour
between two buildings on the horizon
and light the top of the giant pear tree
where a single blackbird
sings in the spotlight
only
On the morning of the Summer solstice
