Ode to 298

 298

It is haunting,
It is daunting,
A number, so great,
Now antagonistic- Two-Ninety-Eight.

Then it flapped by…
A new shape in the sky
Two-ninety-nine
This prize is mine!

So close; yet so far! I stand
Trying to get to that number so “Grand”
Hmmm- What will 300 be?
Something common or a rarity?

Out of the blue
There it flew!?!
Or was it on the trail?
A Virginia Rail?

An Anhinga? A Goshawk?
I’ve never heard that squawk!
Saw Whet or Barn Owl?
I can’t throw in the towel.

The deed is done in just one day.
LOOK OUT BIRDS! I’m coming to Cape May!
