      We just had 2 people have to drop out of the bee identification course in WV for the week of April 11.

      If you are interested in taking the class email and I will fill you in on the details.

      Such power in the naming of things -
      to walk out in the greensward pronouncing
      goldfinch, lilac, oriental poppy -
      as if the shaping of the thing in sound
      produced a pleasure like the sight of things
      as if the house finch winters in the mock-orange is
      as tasty an intelligence to the lips and ears as
      the sight of a small purple bird in December is
      perched in a thicket of bald branches.
      June you remember: the white blossoms, yellow
      jackets, the fresh scent of heaven.
      And other incarnations to be named:
      nuthatch, magnolia, coreopsis, rose.
      Surely this was God's first gift of godliness -
      that new index finger working over the globe
      assigning from the noisy void those fresh,
      orderly syllables.  Ocean, garden,
      helpmate, tree of knowledge.
      Making came easy, creation
      a breeze.  But oh, that dizzy pleasure when
      God said Eve and the woman looked heavenward.
