The Blue Heron

blue heron at reservoir overlook natchez trace

The blue heron

a paragon of dignity

so easy to see

an example to humanity


He stands in the water

with a cap so blue

admiring the sunrise

the day is anew


God created him a home

so perfect in every way

providing for his needs

paragon for the day


A lesson for us

to be content

standing tall with dignity

not to lament

  1. I just love these birds. The other day I was driving and all of a sudden I realized that a blue heron was walking across the street in front of me. He was so majestic and walked very slowly right in front of my car. I didn’t have my camera with me. I was so excited to see the bird.

    • The blue herons are one of the largest water birds that are around here. We also have some egrets and quite a few geese. They are so fun to observe and photograph. Thanks for reading.
