Newbies



The ostensible subject matter of this particular Mary Oliver poem is crickets, but I think it applies to my house finches as well:


 
 
Let us hope
 

 
It will always be like this,
each of us going on
in our inexplicable ways
building the universe.


 

from
 
Why I Wake Early (2004)

  2. I think your fluffy helpless little ones with their (comparatively) huge, gapings maws, are beautiful and terrible -- or at least a bit terrifying!

    1. They mostly sleep -- not so terrifying.
