  1. ‘then is the tanager / rightly perceived as / the only reality / true to that moment’ . . . a wonderful line, be it a rhetorical question or a straightforward statement . . . Yes, it is . . .


  2. I still remember the scarlet tanager by a Northeastern Ontario lake even decades later. Wonderful poem! You have inspired me to write about that unusual experience. Thanks again.


  3. I love it, especially the first stanza. The neighbor I associate with is keeping the bird feeder filled, and plans to build a better bird house. Currently we have Chickadees, wrens and a couple hummingbirds.
