A bird came down the walk: He did not know I saw; He bit an angle-worm in halves And ate the fellow, raw.And then he drank a dew From a convenient grass, And then hopped sidewise to the wall To let a beetle pass.He glanced with rapid eyes That hurried all abroad,-- They looked like frightened beads, I thought; He stirred his velvet headLike one in danger; cautious, I offered him a crumb, And he unrolled his feathers And rowed him softer homeThan oars divide the ocean, Too silver for a seam, Or butterflies, off banks of noon, Leap, plashless, as they swim.(Emily Dickinson)
what cool cucumbers!Love the silhouettes
Great !Didn't know E.Dickinson's poem...I would say your photo story make me recover those words:"Two little dicky birds sitting on a wall,one named Peter,one named Paul,......"loveMarie-Noëlle
Great poem, Marie-Noëlle! :-)
had to run off a cat who was stalking our birds yesterday. I sure wish folks wouldn't let their cats run wild. they kill so many birds.
Yes, this is something I do not understand at all: how can somebody who loves cats not think about the many songbirds they kill if allowed to roam wild?
