The swallows return
Late afternoon on Monday, as I was getting my veggie garden weeded and dug, I looked up in the sky. Way high, there was a flock of maybe a hundred birds, and they looked like swallows. There was no sound from them, so I wasn't sure. I was riveted, and just watched as they flew past, some of them in a diagonal line here and there, all flying into the northwest.
As they flew past, I thought, "I wish I had my camera with me" But I didn't want to stop watching. So this morning I drew what I remember, and photoshopped the birds into the sky.
If they were indeed swallows, then spring is finally here! Can't wait for those happy birds racing through our skies, singing their cheerful songs.
"Those little nimble musicians of the air, that warble forth their curious ditties, with which nature hath furnished them to the shame of art. "
