Of you, the wood thrush that you are, I write.
Although beyond the limits of my sight,
You are the essence of the spring's delight!
Flute, whistling in the leafy canopy,
To my receptive heart you come to be
The very echo of Persephone!
From Costa Rica you flew back to mate,
Your nest of blue eggs defying the fate
Of many migrants, lost to threats too great!
Whistling proudly here keeps you humble there,
Your three notes lost in the tropical air
Vibrant with the birdsongs from everywhere!
May being proud keep me humble as you,
Living life unto Nature always true,
As my highest nature directs me to!
This spring I seek your notes, but do not find.
Oh Flute! Never will I leave you behind.
Sing on, in the sacred woods of my mind!
Author's Notes: See, Flute's Journey, by Lynne Cherry - great bio of a wood thrush, great children's book, great conservation message!
Author's Location: Toledo, Ohio
