Excerpt
Birds of Passage. Prelude: / WHAT a twitter! what a tumult! what a whirr of wheeling wings! / Birds of Passage hear the message which the Equinoctial brings. / Birds of Passage hear the message and beneath the flying clouds, / Mid the falling leaves of autumn, congregate in clamorous crowds. / Shall they venture on the voyage? are the nestlings fledged for flight; / Fit to face the fluctuant storm-winds and the elemental night? / What a twitter! what a tumult! to the wild wind's marching song / Multitudinous Birds of Passage round the cliffs of England throng.
