Excerpt from A Summer Hymnal: A Romance of Tennessee

The Cat-Bird.

Oet, when he wants to be -
A blue song-wave of melody -
Wood-thrush, thrasher, oriole,
Poet notes that upward roll -
A lullaby of trick and trill,
The robin's call across the hill.

Excerpt from A Summer Hymnal: A Romance of Tennessee

The Cat-Bird.

Oet, when he wants to be -
A blue song-wave of melody -
Wood-thrush, thrasher, oriole,
Poet notes that upward roll -
A lullaby of trick and trill,
The robin's call across the hill.

Poet, when he wants to be -
Ay, more than poet, singer he -
Singer-for now the mocking-bird
From honeysuckle vine is heard,
Trilling, trilling - alas, the fall
Ending in a harsh cat-call.

Poet, when he wants to be -
Alas, the lesson we may see -
The life-songs that around us float,
Ending in a broken note.
