Soft Winged Things
A LOVE FOR WINGED THINGS.
[XXXVII., April 12, 1840.]
My love flowed e'er for things with wings.
When boy I sought for forest fowl,
And caged them in rude rushes' mesh,
And fed them with my breakfast roll;
So that, though fragile were the door,
They rarely fled, and even then
Would flutter back at faintest call!
