“O for a Muse of fire,
that would ascend
The brightest heaven
of invention,
A kingdom for a
stage, princes to act
And monarchs to
behold the swelling
-Willam Shakespeare
King Henry V

Bird Watching

holds you
not only for bird reasons, but
because it slows you
down enough
and silences you
enough to show
so you know
what the place where you stand
sounds like when
you are not there
