Look at six eggs
In a mockingbird’s nest.

Listen to six mockingbirds
Flinging follies of O-be-joyful
Over the marshes and uplands.

Look at songs
Hidden in eggs.


Carl Sandburg (January 6, 1878 – July 22, 1967)

  1. Each and every post you produce is exquisitely poetic.

    • And some are poems!
      But, yes, thank you—I do hope that, together, the science, the verse, the images, ideas, and passion combine to have the aesthetic, emotional, and rational appeal that poetry combines in its own way.

  2. So lovely – thanks.

    • That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it: Imagine the potential.
      Otherwise, nothing matters.
      When, in actuality, everything matters.
