WHIPPOORWILLS
[ Also see Animals Birds ]

Where deep and misty shadows float
  In forest's depths is heard thy note.
    Like a lost spirit, earthbound still,
      Art thou, mysterious whip-poor-will.
      - Marie Le Baron, The Whip-Poor-Will

But the whip-poor-will wails on the moor,
  And day has deserted the west:
    The moon glimmers down thro' the vines at my door
      And the robin has flown to her nest.
      - James Freeman Clarke

The moan of the whip-poor-will from the hillside; the boding cry of the tree-toad, that harbinger of storm; the dreary hooting of the screechowl.
      - Washington Irving

The moon of the whip-poor-will from the hillside; the boding cry of the tree-toad, that harbinger of storm; the dreary hooting of the screechowl.
      - Washington Irving,
        The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,
        (from The Sketch Book)
