Wordy Wednesday


Birds

No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings. - William Blake

Birds of a feather will gather together. - Robert Burton

A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren't we like that wise old bird? - Edward Hersey Richards

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. - Alexander Pope

The early bird gets the worm. -American Proverb

A bird is three things:
Feathers, flight and song,
And feathers are the least of these. - Aesop's Fables

You have to believe in happiness,
Or happiness never comes ...
Ah, that's the reason a bird can sing -
On his darkest day he believes in Spring.
Douglas Malloch

Have you ever observed a humming-bird moving about in an aerial dance among the flowers - a living prismatic gem.... it is a creature of such fairy-like loveliness as to mock all description.
W.H. Hudson

There'll be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow, just you wait and see.
Nat Burton
From song, The White Cliffs of Dover

Twist it! Shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it baby!
Here we go loop di loo!
Shake it out baby!
Here we go loop di lie!

Bend over, let me see you shake your tail feather
Bend over, let me see you shake your tail feather
Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather
Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!  Blues Brothers Lyrics 




Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free 
Beatles Lyrics

Hope you will pop by on Friday to read the latest gossip from Colette on what's been going on at Teddybo Towers ;0)
