A Plan For Preserving Birdsong

Dennis Lee
From:   unpublished, 1999.


Is it true that tiny lawyers
     Hatch in puddles in the spring?
I plan to capture orioles
     And teach them how to sing;
But if they can't, the lawyers,
     Dressed in tiny feathered suits,
Could congregate in sheltered spots
     And play on tiny flutes.
