'First a gossipy jay, then a grackle in mourning. / Now today a convention of sparrows. / The whole balcony flickers brown. They feed / like horses at a trough, queue up on the railing for turns. / The thinkers take the floor and spilled seed, beaks opening, closing to the glory of food.'--from ''Six Poems for Nine Crows'' (after a painting by S. Krause in Philip Booth's apartment, Syracuse, New York).
