Martin Johnson Heade's Black-Breasted Plovercrest (1864-1865)

I am working on a villanelle about this painting; another poem in my Heade series. Yes, it actually does rhyme, something I rarely try.

I will probably post a draft of this one, as soon as I've done a bit of polishing.


In other news, the reported norovirus cases at Hope College are up over 400, and the college is going to stay closed at least until Wednesday morning.

I'm reading a chapbook about birds: "How to Study Birds" by Sarah Gardener. I dig it. Perhaps you should check it out, with all the bird talk...
