CITY GEESE

By Ron Hirschi

"Ron Hirschi describes the city geese of Fort Collins, Colorado in this lovely photographic book."
Love Canada Geese

Resident Goose
By Belle Schmidt
 

I’m a wise bird, a sky bird, a wild bird and shy,

I’m a park bird, an ark bird with no need to fly.

I’m a big bird, a banded bird, eating grass and corn,

I love to honk hello to each new Colorado morn.

I’ll never be a migrant bird, flying the trackless sky,

I’m a sleek bird, a fat bird, who hates to say goodbye.

I’m a tame bird, a local bird, swimming lakes and ponds

I love the Front Range view — why venture far beyond?

I’m a resident goose and step with waddling gait.

I’m a stay-here goose and have a stay-here mate.

No going south for me; no unseen path to follow,

Only gravel paths:  I’m no Capistrano swallow.
