I watched through train windows until they found an empty compartment. Now they're out with thirty shee-ee-ee-eep and eight horrrrses, or in with five German shepherds that can't but bark and two Russian blues that can't quite meow. One mare has been covered; another is still thinking about it. And, says the girl, there's a very small lamb in the fold. A pair of white storks is back from Africa and nesting at the top of the telephone pole just outside their bedroom window. I know this all through the phone, through wires to the pole where the storks listen in.
