And so it came to pass that Tennessee Petunia liked the baby Louisiana for more than just her flavor. What a relief!
So she flew to him, did the girl finch, willing to risk all for the high-wire act that is love.
And she spread her wings and said to the boy finch (quoting The Bard),
“Hear my soul speak:
The very instant that I saw you, did
My heart fly to your service.”
And they lived happily after ever.
