...Although we're city dwellers/Our wooded lots are deep.../My kitchen view is a priceless one/And one I'm sure to keep!
Bird sketches include the Saw-Whet Owl, Blue-Necked Pheasant and Nuthatch. Sallie writes in metered rhyme except when penning haiku and senryu. In this volume she cites rules for both traditional Japanese (3-line, 17-syllable)
Bullfrogs are croaking/cicadas and crickets chirp/music of the night
and non-traditional forms in English
My beagle sleeping/twitches and whines/run rabbit, run!
and Naked oak branches/gnarled and twisted/like old woman's hands.
