"I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds and bowers..."
-Robert Herrick (1591-1674), British poet
I live by the water, so as I exit my home and walk outdoors, the birds on the river look at me and fly away.
There is such abundance of wildlife here....various species of ducks, geese, herons, grebes, coots, muskrats, snakes, eels, and of course, fish. Sometimes I'll watch a diving duck disappear under the water only to emerge with his dinner. There have been times when I will see a new unidentifiable creature, only to find that it's an migratory bird, a new one for my life-list.
And always, there is the quiet.
