Poem for Friday and Renaissance Birds

I saw a man pursuing the horizon
By Stephen Crane

I saw a man pursuing the horizon;
Round and round they sped.
I was disturbed at this;

"It is futile," I said,
"You can never-"

"You lie," he cried,
And ran on.

Not much to report anyway during the day -- just work and chores.

I ran late getting out for a walk, too, so it was nearly dark and while I stayed on the sidewalk instead of taking the woods path, I saw four bunnies for the first time since the summer -- how come bunnies become nocturnal in the fall? I loved Elementary (I love when Watson's medical knowledge solves the case). Flashback to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire:
