I spied them carefully as if I was 
meant to court them as they hung on 
the Edison above the roof, slightly 
swaying with the breeze. 
So unique a singing voice with so
many songs, yet louder than the 
sparrow or swallow, chicks following 
close at hand.
The older ones clothed in blue-gray 
with white feathered bellies, the younger 
ones mostly gray, they sit elegantly on the 
wire ballerinas balanced with perfectly 
straight wings, sirens teasing, hunters 
looking for exotic caterpillars or just 
basking in the sun with a song, each 
one unique with a mind of its own.
