Thanks, Mike! The quote is actually the last two lines of a poem I wrote myself while I was still in college in 1967. That's what came to mind as I heard the birds singing in the dawn this morning. Don't know if you'll like the rest of it as well as that part, but here goes:

bird without song

a bird without song
could only weep
through whatever unknown mishap
she lost her voice
however gay her song
could she yet sing

a poet without words
could only weep
for whatever unknown reason
he could not write
however gay his tale
could he but express

be glad and rejoice
then o my heart
the bird shall sing
the words shall come
telling of the place
and the love now

the birds at dawn
shall hear my song

Thank you, Kat! I knew the moment I opened my eyes and saw the pink glow that it would be an extraordinary dawn. A fitting way to close out the old year! Happy New Year to you as well! Have you visited my party picture from last year? Link on Molten 3.

Thank you, Julia, Donna, and Genie! With the camera set with -2 exposure bias, Genie, there was little or no need to saturate the photos in processing.
