by Ethel Mortenson Davis The unfurrowing of new leaves is like a carefully synchronized orchestra with each musician in exact harmony. But we do not stand and applaud. Only Oriole gets up and sings his splendid song, dressed in brightly colored vestments.

I confess I don’t know what an oriole looks or sounds like; we’re not (as far as I know) blessed with his presence here in the UK. But your poem brings him and his ‘splendid song’ vividly to life for me, and is a bright light in a dark day. Thank you, Ethel.
That is a very nice comment. Thank you. Ethel
Here is a picture, Nick. Ethel
Thank you – what a beautiful bird, and a wonderful photograph. Nick
A fine performance. And gratis too! 🙂
The same to you. Thank you. Ethel
Wish we had Orioles here in the northwest. Your poem is delightful, Ethel.
