BLUEBIRDS
[ Also see Animals Birds ]

"So the Bluebirds have contracted, have they, for a house?
  And a next is under way for little Mr. Wren?"
    "Hush, dear, hush! Be quiet, dear! quiet as a mouse.
      These are weighty secrets, and we must whisper them."
      - Susan Coolidge (pseudonym of Sarah Chauncey Woolsey),
        Secrets

In the thickets and the meadows
  Piped the bluebird, the Owaissa.
    On the summit of the lodges
      Sang the robin, the Opechee.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Hiawatha
         (pt. XXI)

Whither away, Bluebird,
  Whither away?
    The blast is chill, yet in the upper sky
      Thou still canst find the color of thy wing,
        The hue of May.
          Warbler, why speed, thy southern flight? ah, why,
            Thou, too, whose song first told us of the Spring?
              Whither away?
      - Edmund Clarence Stedman,
        The Flight of Birds
