“Ah, you are kind – and I? must dance with the wind, make my own snow flakes, whistle a contrapuntal melody to my own fugue! Huzza then, this is the dance of the blue moss bank! Huzza then, this is the mazurka of the hollow log! Huzza then, this is the dance of rain in the cold trees.” — William Carlos Williams
It came to me on this morning’s walk that the song of hummingbirds, which I heard over and over and over again, reminds me of Fizzies. Who remembers Fizzies?
