Listen!—the wind is crying, like a loon
On some far water, and the rising moon
Stands breathless on the snow! That wind!   – John James Piatt (1835–1917)

    Figures that not being able to get to this one, I would be shown a Wayfaring Tree (inside joke, folks–it was something I memorized with so many repetitions to myself that my identifying it is a standing joke on walks) but I am wondering again about the absence of the Trumpeter Swans, and guessing that I already heard they learned to migrate…which is wonderful, if that is so!
    I’m certainly looking forward to getting to the Bluffs on another day!
