About the Poem

Loons are very elegant birds, and quite whimsically unique as well. They sing songs of laughter during the warm seasons, yet remain silent through the winter months.

Their melodious song, when they choose to sing, has a hauntingly mysterious echoing sound that clearly distinguishes them from other birds. They truly seem to be laughing aloud. Seeing them in the wild is an experience everyone should enjoy from time to time.

The Laughter Of The Loon

The secrets of remote lagoon
From morning's blush of dawn,
Till rise of eve's nocturnal moon
Sung by her eerie song.

Such wonderment from wint'ry surd,
Soliloquy's mere tune.
Grand jubilance in summer's heard -
Uncommon sounds the loon.

Bespeckled pinions, grace in flight,
Resplendent is her plume.
Bemusing splash to see her light
Cavort about the flume.

Her serenade's a proud regale,
A songbird so unique.
How wondrous her falsetto wail
Reechoing mystique.

I'll not divulge the secret song
Of this remote lagoon.
I'd rather hearken years along
The laughter of the loon.

I really enjoyed this poem. I'm not familiar with loons, but was reminded of a blue heron that holds forth in a place caled the Olalla Lagoon (Olalla, Washington). A beautiful place with a beautiful bird. Sincerely, Bruce Beardsley
