Beautiful is. . .


To The Editor:

Whatever art is, beautiful is a nesting pair of Canada geese who return every year to our pond. Beautiful is the adults standing guard over the little ones until they are grown. Beautiful is, one day they are all gone, and us hoping they will be back next year.

Beautiful is not oversize origami caricatures of swans stuck in trees. Or a ludicrous pencil. Or burnt remnants floating on the pond.

An adult pair is back this week. Have you noticed? They actually look out of place. Unbelievable.

And, oh yeah, let's be done with the outhouse, too. Who wants to look at that?
