Feather's Miscellany: To A Skylark

...this skylark's song ravishes the air...

John Waddington-Feather's poem celebrates the most tuneful of all birds.

Such torrents of song young Shelley heard,
as I hear now; such notes of beauty
field-hovering the corn
in landscape hedging skyline-rim,
green woodland coppicing blue sky-rise.
Now over all, under all, this skylark's song
ravishes the air; sight and sound sensating;
sight and sound alerting me to God.
