LINNETS
[ Also see Animals Birds ]

Is it for thee the linnet pours his throat?
  Loves of his own, and raptures swell the note.
      - Alexander Pope, Essay on Man
         (ep. III, l. 33)

Perch'd on the cedar's topmost bough,
  And gay with gilded wings,
    Perchance the patron of his vow,
      Some artless linnet sings.
      - William Shenstone, Valentine's Day

I do sing because I must,
  And pipe but as the linnets sing.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam
         (pt. XXI, st. 6)

Linnets . . . sit
  On the dead tree, a dull despondent flock.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Autumn
         (l. 974)

Hail to thee, far above the rest
  In joy of voice and pinion!
    Thou, linnet! in thy green array,
      Presiding spirit here to-day,
        Dost lead the revels of the May;
          And this is thy dominion.
      - William Wordsworth, The Green Linnet
