A Poem for Tuesday
The Most Triumphant Bird I ever knew or met by Emily Dickinson
The most triumphant Bird I ever knew or met
Embarked upon a twig today
And all Dominion set
I famish to behold so eminent a sight
And sang for nothing scrutable
But intimate Delight.
Retired, and resumed his transitive Estate -
To what delicious Accident
Does finest Glory fit!
On Friday at Butchart I met this delightful robin...so gloriously coloured and delightful. He sat so still for me; for that I was grateful.
Tell me, what encounter in nature has warmed your soul this past week?
