hen wren whirrs from stone to furze the world around
  her slows, for wren is quick, so quick she blurs the air
  through which she flows, yes –
Rapid wren is needle, rapid wren is pin – and wren’s song
  is sharp-song, briar-song, thorn-song, and wren’s flight
  is dark-flight, flick-flight, night-flight, yes –
Each wren etches, stitches, switches, glitches, yes – .
Now you think you see wren, now you know you don’t.
