Quotes > W > W H Davies

When on a summer's morn I wake, 
 And open my two eyes, 
 Out to the clear, born-singing rills 
 My bird-like spirit flies.
 
 To hear the Blackbird, Cuckoo, Thrush, 
 Or any bird in song; 
 And common leaves that hum all day 
 Without a throat or tongue.
 
 And when Time strikes the hour for sleep, 
 Back in my room alone, 
 My heart has many a sweet bird's song - 
 And one that's all my own. - W H Davies

"When on a summer's morn I wake, And open my two eyes, Out to the clear, born-singing rills My bird-like spirit flies. To hear the Blackbird, Cuckoo, Thrush, Or any bird in song; And common leaves that hum all day Without a throat or tongue. And when Time strikes the hour for sleep, Back in my room alone, My heart has many a sweet bird's song - And one that's all my own." - W H Davies
