leaves wings and other such things

song through the trees

Song birds

nature’s singing voice.

little bird happily sings in a floating baritone 
trumpet bird singing while nested in a pod of leaves 

And many another chorister
That time would fail to tell,
Who helps to make the woods resound 

With bursts of rich melodious sound
That answering echoes from around
To one grand chorus swell. 

woman in landscape listens to the bird song in the trees



—poem excerpt from To the Birds by Martha Lavinia Hoffman
