very idea of a bird is a symbol and a suggestion to the poet. A bird
seems to be at the top of the scale, so vehement and intense his life.
. . . The beautiful vagabonds, endowed with every grace, masters of all
climes, and knowing no bounds -- how many human aspirations are
realized in their free, holiday-lives -- and how many suggestions to
the poet in their flight and song!
John Burroughs (1837 - 1921), Birds and Poets, 1887
