An Urban Dovecote

photo copy

27 February Friday

There is a large dark green dovecote on the rue Reamur. It is raised up on a pole so that it is out of reach of people. Birds can feel safe within its confines. Sadly, I never see any birds entering or leaving the dovecote. I do not think there are any living there. I am not sure why the structure stands where it stands nor why it is so well cared for if it is not being used. I wonder when it was built. This is the first time I have continued to think about it after I walked out of sight of it. I do all my wondering right at the point of viewing the dovecote and then it and its questions evaporate.EVH
