SERVICE AND THRIFT
THE BIRDS OF KILLINGWORTH by HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW

But blither still and louder caroled they
Upon the morrow, for they seemed to know
It was the fair Almira's wedding day,
And everywhere, around, above, below,
s When the Preceptor bore his bride away,
Their songs burst forth in joyous overflow,
And a new heaven bent over a new earth
Amid the sunny farms of Killingworth.
