From the White Pine


                                                       from the white pine across the road

                                                      a gossipy owl calls to let me know
 
                                                      the pelicans are taking up

                                                      all the room on the river and                                      

                                                      the mailman left a letter





The photograph is mine.

    1. Those pelicans did take up a lot of room on the river, came by the hundreds that spring ... a party line owl seems appropriate on this country road ......
