BOBOLINKS
[ Also see Animals Birds ]

Robert of Lincoln's Quaker wife,
  Pretty and quiet, with plain brown wings,
    Passing at home a patient life,
      Broods in the grass while her husband sings.
      - William Cullen Bryant

Modest and shy as a nun is she;
  One weak chirp is her only note;
    Braggarts and prince of braggarts is he,
      Pouring boasts from his little throat.
      - William Cullen Bryant, Robert of Lincoln

Robert of Lincoln is gayly drest,
  Wearing a bright black wedding-coat;
    White are his shoulders and white his crest.
      - William Cullen Bryant, Robert of Lincoln

One day in the bluest of summer weather,
  Sketching under a whispering oak,
    I heard five bobolinks laughing together,
      Over some ornithological joke.
      - Christopher Pearce Cranch, Bird Language

When Nature had made all her birds,
  With no more cares to think on,
    She gave a rippling laugh and out
      There flew a Bobolinkon.
      - Christopher Pearce Cranch, The Bobolinks

Bobolink! that in the meadow,
  Or beneath the orchard's shadow,
    Keepest up a constant rattle joyous as my children's prattle,
      Welcome to the north again.
      - Thomas Hill

The crack-brained bobolink courts his crazy mate,
  Poised on a bulrush tipsy with his weight.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., Spring

Out of the fragrant heart of bloom,
  The bobolinks are singing;
    Out of the fragrant heart of bloom
      The apple-tree whispers to the room,
        "Why art thou but a nest of gloom
          While the bobolinks are singing?"
      - William Dean Howells,
        The Bobolinks are Singing
