“The birds are a chorus…clearly relatives of Mozart” — Jim Harrison


Okay, so not the crows.

Crows murder a song.

You should pardon the expression.


Definitely not jays, grackles, or hawks.


Nor seafaring birds of any kind.


Woodpeckers can belt out a solo now and then.

Cranes create a whoop-de-doo,

but nothing melodious bleeds through.


Eagles and buzzards just cannot carry a tune.


Finches, warblers, and Mockingbirds rock.

Robins have a voice, but a limited repertoire.


Barred Owls?  Maybe Bach.



This is part of “28 Days of Unreason”

based on prompts taken from poems

by Jim Harrison.
