I wonder why

“I saw a leaf that had a hole,
Beneath the hole, a fly.
I do not think he did it,
If he did, I wonder why?”

How the helican

“A wonderful bird is the pelican.

His bill can hold more than his belican.

He can hold in his beak

Enough food for a week,

But I’m damned if I see how the helican.”

~ Ogden Nash

Birds of prey

“Of all types of birds, birds of prey have always fascinated people.” ~ Jim Knight

As daylight yielded to the dusk

As daylight yielded to the duskss clwd srf
With nightfall yet to come,
A ghostly apparition surfed
Before the setting sun.

Was it a sign of past events,
Of battles false and true?
Perhaps instead a harbinger
Of deeds we’ve yet to do.

We cannot know its meaning
Though a few will always try.
The answers lie within our hearts,
Not written in the sky.

Where unicorns run free

This bridge will only take you halfway theretrz snw brdg

To those mysterious lands you long to see:

Through gypsy camps and swirling Arab fairs

And moonlit woods where unicorns run free.

~ Shel Silverstein
