Contents: The ones they came back for --
The lodge at Osprey Island --
Where the osprey makes its nest --
The raptor is a bird of prey --
To what direction will your chicks take wing? --
How black the night that blinds our human hearts --
As fodder blazes stored above the byre --
In the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge --
The mechanics of flight --
An osprey builds its nest of sticks and all the rubbish it can collect --
How the osprey tends its nestlings --
The blessings of hypothermia --
On the interaction of species --
The nature of the structure of a lie --
The broodiness of hens: a brief lesson in avian reproduction --
If the price were treachery --
A long time helpless in the nest --
As they flee you'd think they float on wings --
WWCD? --
The shore recedes, and I too on the shore --
Grief-spurred, swift-swooping --
That flesh of his own flesh --
Night is the surest nurse of troubles souls --
An eyrie of osprey.
Responsibility: by Thisbe Nissen.
