THE BIRDS OF KILLINGWORTH by HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW

THE TRIAL OF THE BIRDS
It was the season when all through the land
The merle and mavis build, and building sing
Those lovely lyrics written by His hand
Whom Saxon Caedmon calls the Blithe-Heart King;
When on the boughs the purple buds expand,
The banners of the vanguard of the Spring,
And rivulets, rejoicing, rush and leap
And wave their fluttering signals from the steep.
