    Oooooo, this one is wonderful. I love that switch. And it's so true, at least in my experience with listening to loon calls. Thanks!

    Nice reversal captures the moment.

    martin, one hasn't lived until they've heard the call of the loon, the bobwhite's, or the whippoorwill's at twilight

    your ku reminds me of what i'd written, one pensive evening, at the end of summer; of course, enhanced by last season's pressed catawba grape, near hammondsport, new york.
