O birds, your perfect virtues bring,
Your song, your forms, your rhythmic flight,
Your manners for your heart’s delight,
Nestle in hedge, or barn, or roof,
Here weave your chamber weather-proof,
To men, as to a lubber friend,
(Text from Ralph Waldo Emerson's "May Day")
Just a quick note...I had to look a few of these words up, so in case you also wondered, a lubber = a clumsy person and probity = integrity or uprightness. Am I the only one who didn't know those words?
I'm happy today to share with Sunday Sketches!
