C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


  • Whither away, Bluebird,
  • Whither away?
  • The blast is chill, yet in the upper sky,
  • Thou still canst find the color of thy wing,
  • The hue of May.
  • Warbler, why speed thy southern flight? ah, why,
  • Thou too, whose song first told us of the Spring?
  • Whither away?
  • E. C. Stedman.
