Little Bird (Celtic Poem)

Little bird! O little bird!

I wonder at what thou doest,
Thou singing merry far from me,
I in sadness all alone!

Little bird! O little bird!

I wonder at how thou art
Thou high on the tips of branching boughs,
I on the ground a-creeping!

Little bird! O little bird!

Thou art music far away,
Like the tender croon of the mother loved
In the kindly sleep of death.

Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gizmos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn’t make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel.
