Birds

Famous quotes containing the word birds:

    Thou waitest late and com’st alone,
    When woods are bare and birds are flown,
    William Cullen Bryant (1794–1878)

    Beauty sat bathing by a spring,
    Where fairest shades did hide her;
    The winds blew calm, the birds did sing,
    The cool streams ran beside her.
    My wanton thoughts enticed mine eye
    To see what was forbidden:
    But better memory said Fie;
    So vain desire was chidden—
    Anthony Munday (1553–1633)

    The kiss of the sun for pardon,
    The song of the birds for mirth,
    One is nearer God’s Heart in a garden
    Than anywhere else on earth.
    Dorothy Frances Gurney (1858–1932)
