Honk If You Love Geeses



The flotilla of geese gliding on the mirror lake
Blurt out the name of the town:

Burke!  Burke!  Burke!

The iris purples the water's edge,
Ignoring their nasty noise.

A red-winged blackbird
Longs to perch on cattail or cornstalk
In the sea of suburban green,
And finding none, he grumps:

Burke Burkity Burke.

No honking from me. They can do it on their own.

Hi Forsythia!

Enjoy the Spring/Summer that has finally come. We had about a dozen turkeys in my daughter's back yard last week. Our 20 month-old loves them ""Turkey, Turkey" he yells as he runs toward them and they waddle away.
