COME SIT BY ME

  
                             COME, SIT BY ME ( to Emily Dickinson)



 Emily--
    Come,
        Sit by me --

We’ll watch the singing chicks 

Starlings searching --always searching on
Searching--hopping
                            through the plucky dawn

 as the blue jumps from the sky--
We'll watch determined style

never stopping
always hopping

chirp in single file

There must be a lesson
in the birdlife that we see

Never finding what they seek
but happy as can be.

    Victoria, dearest, I stand with egg on my face... I remember now this exchange. I suppose 79 years of life have dulled the recollection skills of this old wordsmith. Since I can't unmail my soup mail, You'll have to disregard it.... "Come Sit By Me" is a terrific post and I look forward to reading more of your work..... Jake

    When I stop and listen closely I can hear Miss Emily reply, "Why yes, my dear, I'd be delighted"..... Victoria, if only for an instant, Your pen and ink brought her back to us.... Thank You... Jake
