When Beth and Jean were younger we traveled to Costa Rica. Hummingbirds abounded and in one park there were so many that Eric began speaking for them, interpreting the dazzling birds’ bids for our intention. Older now, but not so wise that they have stopped believing that animals can talk under the proper circumstances, Beth and Jean asked Eric to again speak for an animal that frequently crossed our paths. The following haiku honors our fanciful guest.
Y muy modesto.
