  1. Must be something in the air in Amherst that encourages great poets! Enjoying your literary pointers, some unknown and a pleasure to make their acquaintance.

    • I first discovered Francis 30 years ago in an anthology of American Poets. His poem “Silent Poem” reminds me of the place I grew up and the Allegheny National Forest where I used to hike and fish.

  2. I’ll look out for that one.. good to find that Thrift list a number.. credit card to the fore, charge!

  3. Hi Jack and Barbra! Nice photo of the waxwing. If you don’t mind, in what part of UB area did you find the waxwing? Can’t seem to find it in Songhino and Bogd Khan. Thanks.

    • Nice to hear from you,Jun! Waxwings migrate through Ulaanbaatar in spring. They don’t stay very long. They are going further north, to Siberia, to nest. Look for them any place there are wintertime or springtime berries. We sometimes saw them near The Garden restaurant feeding on orange or red berries there. I think in March or April. Good luck!
