“Love of the wild is an expression of loyalty

To the earth which bore and sustains us:

The only home that we will ever know,

The only paradise we will ever need,

If only we have the eyes to see.”


Edward Abbey




What a joy it has been

This year’s Early Spring

I’ve been observing ‘Wild’

So many wonders it brings


I’ve been rising before the dawn

With my binoculars and my dogs

Heading off to a nearby woodland

Glad to be outdoors perched on a log


Our wetlands and our marshes, are already in bloom

Their vibrant wildflowers, now bursting from the ground

So many different types of magnificent ‘wild’ life forms

It doesn’t take very long, before another wonder is found


Besides the delightful garter snake that we encountered

At a marsh drinking, stood a white-tail deer and her fawn

From a rock in a creek, a large box turtle gazed back at us

My dogs were mesmerized by a crow, cawing to us at dawn


Just the other morning, so very bright and early

We spotted a pair of Yellow-Headed Blackbirds

They had stopped at this wetland to rest for awhile

Their song and their brilliant color, far beyond words


And yesterday morning, we had a marvelous encounter

At first light, we suddenly heard “Pee Wee! Pee Wee!”

The melody of an Eastern Wood PeWee in a nearby tree

Our visitor had recently left his winter home, in the Andes


What an incredible journey, for such a creature, so very tiny

Now winging his way from South America to the Northwood

And what a joy, hearing him singing out his exuberant greeting

“Pee Wee! Pee Wee!” so full of life, and so magnificently good


What a joy it has been,

This year’s Early Spring;

I have been observing ‘Wild’,

So many wonders it did bring.

Enchanting imagery there, Ed!!! I sat out on my back deck yesterday morning, sheltered from the chilly northeasterly wind, and it was just me and my backyard serenade (robins,bluejays,blackbirds,sparrows,squirels, etc) and it was pure magic. Winter's hush is only a memory.............

to be filled with the wonder of Nature
and marvel at its splendours is a gift, Ed,
and a lifelong romance

strangely, my friend's cockatoo says "peewee" ... at least the Eastern Wood PeWee doesn't live in a cage ...

Enjoying Spring's wonders is a rite of passage enjoyed by many. Enjoying your wonderful creations and conversations discussing same, though enjoyed by a lesser number, are in my opinion nearly as wondrous. Dick
