I have a new (actually it’s kind of an old) poem published at Heron Tree. It’s nothing about herons or trees. The idea came from a story I heard about a family in Charleston during a yellow fever outbreak. Don’t get too hung up on the facts.
You can read the poem here. Many thanks to the folks at Heron Tree for selecting it.
And here’s a heron photo, shot at Nockamixon State Park in Bucks County PA.
