|"Like coal-black marbles
Dancing on a white table."
Very nice simile. Are crows that vicious? I love birds. They are so important for our existence. Birds and insects. Thanks for sharing.

|More like an orderly chaos - love the juxtapositions in this write - black and white, elder and younger, cold and warmth. Enjoyed this one.|

|Very good poem Regis. It is full of emotion and it tells a moving story that flows smoothly with every line. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it from start to finish. Thank you for sharing.|

|We look at them through the wrong end of the long telescope of time, regis, to use the D.H. Lawrence phrase, the birds are dinosaurs - if you're a beetle! Yes, we can admire their birdsong and overlook their savage fight for survival. Heh!|

|Good one Regis. I have a hummingbird bully that fights away all the others. May God bless you every day of your life.
|Reviewed by Joyce Bell
|EVEN THE BIRDS DO IT...HOW VERY SAD. BUT WHAT IS EVEN MORE SAD IS THE REALIZATION OF THE FACT...IT TAKES SO MUCH MORE THAN THE NOISE OF A 'SLAMMED DOOR ' TO DETER HUMANS FROM KILLING ONE ANOTHER. NOTHING SEEMS TO WORK! OH, COME...LORD JESUS...COME! A MOST POWERFUL SHARING. THANK YOU, REGIS. LOVE, BLESSINGS & FAITH...

|Regis, nature orders all things and this meow established the ordained line in the snow -- an expert photograph defined within your verses my dear friend -- "she rests and sleeps silent" is the last but not the final chapter -- I bid you peace and love -- Jon Michael|

|Nature is not always kind but that is mystery is often hidden in it's beauty as described even in describing black birds here.|
|Reviewed by Sheila Roy
|You really set the tone skillfully here, Regis. Their frenzy made me anxious, and then the calm afterward is a stark contrast. Excellent. Love and hugs,
|Reviewed by Barbara Terry
|I guess when the birds get a little too noisy and playful, you have to let them know somehow. The slamming of a door or a "soo, go away" does wonders. Thank you for sharing this delightful poem.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you, and be with you always and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie

|Wow Regis--That was a powerful poem. I love birds but not incessant squawking when I'm trying to sleep. I need to know--was it a cat as those were big birds or an irate woman with buckshot?
Be safe this holiday weekend

Excellent visuals, thought I wanted want to envision it. Great poem.
|Reviewed by Ronald Hull
|So very realistic and engaging. If only we could abruptly open the door and stop humans from squabbling. At least there are some places where there is peace. Good write!
|Reviewed by Ruan Burke
|Poetic imagery at it's best - I can't help but see it all in my mind's eye - until the cat creeps in and steals the show. :o)|

|This one's a keeper Reg, One question. "...They shriek in defence;..." can't figure out that word... perhaps defense, or maybe defiance? I know you're from Canada and sometimes they spell words differently North of the border. Just wondering. No matter, it's a great poem either way. Thanks Dick

|The cycle of life can be a cold, bitter and cruel journey or it can be a magnificent tour. For those who must be beggars and scratch for their very existence, life can seem to be as much of a curse as it is a blessing. Lots of depth to this offering, Reg, nicely done.
