Tamuh — Is it proper to tame a parrot and give it into the claws of a cat ?

"Eastern Proverbs and Emblems Illustrating Old Truths"


Birds move to their trees and I think of private talk

on the edge of winter, your voice soft, hurried
by the wind; swept-leaves in the bush-hut hours;
parrots like the sound of children sleeping out at dusk.
