Quadrille # 137: Throwing Poem Stones
Along a stony path a mocking bird skips
Stopping now and then when her beak dips
Insects caught between crevasses
Hinder  not her hunger, she passes
Gingerly knowing there they live 
Her feathers a preening she will give 
Thence evening roosting flight her motive

  7. Words as skipping stones, a lovely concept. Mocking birds are mimics, and my grandfather had one in a cage, and it swore like a sailor's parrot. I remember my shock when a crow spoke to me.

  16. Gillena, am I right to assume that a real mocking bird inspired this lovely piece?
