and post notes and photos about your poem like Sandra Haight.
With keen discernment-
I, your Northern Mockingbird,
can recall you as a threat
from past encounters.
Known as 'many-tongued mimic'
I mock songs of birds and frogs.
My songs are diverse
and long- some twenty-seconds-
compiled from the sounds I hear.
Honored and tagged as
State bird for five U.S. States-
you'll find me in books and songs.
