Poetry. "Ted Kooser was moving all his books from his shed to his new library, and in the process he was dipping into them. 'I've been coming up with a list of good bird poems,' he e-mailed. 'Can you think of any others?' Well, of course, there were the classics--by Hopkins, and Frost, and Bishop--but what else came to mind? I began to scan my own shelves. Just in our own collections (Ted's in Nebraska, mine in upstate New York), we unearthed over a thousand poems with birds as their focus (or at least their central image).
