Wood Notes Wild

"The horse neighs, the bull bellows, the lion roars, the tiger growls, the world is full of vocal sounds; only the birds sing. They are Nature's finest artists, whose lives and works are above the earth. They have not learned of us; it is our delight to learn of them. To no other living things are man's mind and heart so greatly indebted. Myriads of these beautiful creatures, journeying thousands of miles over oceans and continents, much of the way by night -to avoid murderers!- return, unfailing as the spring, prompt even to the day and hour, to build their cunning nests and rear their young in our orchards and door-yards, to delight us with their beauty and grace of movement, and above, far above, all, to pour over the world the glory of their song. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear."
