Betsy Steele | Elegy to the park

“Okay, I’m helping folks learn about birds, to focus in on their calls, songs, fleeting glimpses. This is lovely spring that (in the words of the James Russell Lowell poem “June”) ‘comes flooding back with a ripply cheer…,’ “ I thought as we entered the park from Bird Fest Central in mid-May.
