Dawn Chorus

Oh be joyful! It is Dawn Chorus Day.

Hope is the thing with feathers
that perches in the soul
and sings the tune without the words
and never stops at all

                                         ~ Emily Dickinson ~


  1. I have never heard of Dawn Chorus Day but will go back again and read about it. Something lovely to celebrate. And the little songstress is the perfect poster child for it! I'm assuming it is a she as she is a little drab and that's the way it goes with birds, beauty for the males, hidden beauty for the females.

    Dickinson's words never get old.

  2. Lovely, both the little bird singing his heart out and Emily Dickinson's words.
