Well not so much babbling as idling, though it's had plenty of water to fill it this non-summer. It runs under our lane and the banks on the other side are deep in forget-me-nots. There's no real reason to mention it except that it's a thing of beauty.Oh and I once saw a furry animal cavorting in it. Could it have been a fisher?
Or, since fishers don't like fish, possibly a muskrat?
It never introduced itself so I shall probably never know. But I still study the brook intently every time I walk past.
