  4. Bill, this is a wonderful piece. Your poem touched me greatly. I guess we all have those moments of reflection but we don't talk about them - or write about them. I have a teardrop in my eye too. Simply beautiful. I love your solitary little bird. Take a bow.

  6. Maybe not exotic but certainly riveting and touching in it's simplicity. Simply sincere and somewhat sad...but excellent.

  9. Robert James Waller (he who wrote "Bridges of Madison County") wrote a little book of essays called "Old Songs in a New Cafe". Among them was a touching essay on Orange Band, the Last Dusky Seaside Sparrow. Your poem recalled that essay to me. If you can find a copy of the book, you might like to read it. Thanks for sharing your poetic talent, Bill!
