      Oh, well done! If I may:

      Hush-hush, vain Cuckoo!
      The Lark and the Nightingale
      Hold court in this wood.
      Though by dusk and dawn separate
      Their voices find harmony.

        ::heh - nice line, that one::

        In rosy twilight
        I lack for restful birdsong;
        Moon's children silent,
        Sun's children, in Moon's sway, sleep.
        Magpies yet chatter, mocking.

        Margaret, to her own sleep
