about

This is about my close encounter with a Veery for a few weeks one spring at Flat Rock Brook Nature Center.

lyrics

Veery

I know these pathways like the back of my hand
I walk them almost every day
There's someone out there who is waiting for me
If I sit very patiently

Out in these woods surrounding Flat Rock Brook
Where Scarlet Tanagers show off
A reddish thrush is skulking under some trees
Where I'm expecting us to meet

Flat Rock Brook, Flat Rock Brook

Veery
Come listen to me, let me talk to you
I know that you are only passing through
So for just a week or two, it's me and you

I'll take the red trail to McFadden's Pond
Phoebes will nest under the bridge
But summer's bounty is still springtime's dream
Of wildflowers and honeybees

Veery
Come listen to me, let me talk to you
I know that you are only passing through
So for just a week or two, it's me and you

So many spots are marked by memories of birds
But one is dearest to my heart
It's where that thrush would hop right up to my feet
As words would carry in the breeze

Flat Rock Brook, Flat Rock Brook

Veery
Come listen to me, let me talk to you
I know that you are only passing through
So for just a week or two, it's me and you
So for just a week or two, it's me and you
So for just a week or two, it's me and you
