Transcript t#» THE ZEPHYR Monthly Bulletin of the Outdoor Nature Club of Houston, Tex. Vol. 1, No. 2 November, 1924 The- Mockingbird by R.A.Sell "What e'er birus did or dreamed, this bird would say Then down he shot, bounced airily along The sward, twitched in a grass-hopper, made a song Mid flight perched, prinked, and to his art again" — Sidney Lanier. The pageant of fluttering wings and the symphony of bird songs and calls and trills may ebb and flow in accordance with seasonal impulses, but the flash of two white spots from a gray background and the medley of numerous bira songs all in one - the mockingbird - that is the charm of the Southland! Some birds may be regarded as guests, tourists, or visitors from afar, and entitled to special favors, but the mockingbird is "home folks", our ever-present companion and never-failing choir of inspiration and good cheer. The mockingbird has been called, "the poor man's symphony" because its concerts are more highly appreciated by people who do not pretend to have artistic tastes than are the songs of any other biro.. But it .is the "rich i__n's symphony" as well, for its ever-changing, cheerful,ana inspiring song gives courage, independence' and restfulness to rich ana poor alike. Who Cejinot meet the cares and vexations and perplexities of a day's work with better graceafter hearing„the encouraging trill of this- master vocalist of the bird world? . Because this bird has obtained immunity from persecution by man, it prefers to nest in orchards and gardens where less favored birds are not allowed. Sentiment is the real protection for birds, and no other bird is so well protected by public sentiment. Most any crowd of boys,.out for strenuous life, will include one or two members who will bravo the gibes and ridicule of the others in order to offer an objection to harming a mockingbird or destroying its nest. A boy who usos his influence in protecting the birds renders a very important service to humanity; he is a real sportsman. Birds may come and go, but tho mockingbird is the bird of youth and the bird of old age, the universally loved symphony of the back yard. Armistice Day On November 11th, throughout the United States, hundreds of trees will be planted in honor of America's heroes of tho great wari Each year, as poppies bloom on Flanders' fields, these fitting memorials will -lift their crowns higher towards tho sky, and man and bird and Basst will enjoy their friendly bentficence. - sturdy oaks, graceful elms, stately firs, useful pecanfe, and beautiful magnolias and hollies. Even a child may plant a tree; tho whisperings of the' breeze amid its leaves will be more eloquent than.any words of man, and the gratitude of all who share its generous shade will bo as enduring as the endless glory of those whose patriotism it commemorates. Stranger, if thou has learned a truth which needs No school of long experience, that the world Is full of guilt &n_ i_ie_ry, and hast seen Enough of all its sorrows, crimes and cares To tire thee of it, enter this wildwood And viaw the h_unts of Nature. The calm sll»de Shall bring a kindred calm, and the sweet breeze That makes the green leaves dance shall waft a balm To thy sick heart. — Bryant. ,
