Poem by Henry Glassford Bell
THE BIRDS are singing by Avon Bridge, The sky is blue o’er Chatelrault, And all through Cadzow’s wooded glades The softest airs of summer blow. O birds that sing by Avon Bridge, Why should your notes so richly flow? O tranquil sky of cloudless blue, Why shine so bright o’er Chatelrault? O Avon! rolling gently down, Why keep’st thou that old tuneful tone? Where is the voice so soft and low Whose music echoed back thy own? O Cadzow! why this rustling pomp Of leafy boughs that wave so high? Where is the light that gleamed through all Thy shadowy paths in days gone by? O summer airs! why thus recall The sweeter breath, that seemed to bring The balmy dews of southern skies, And all the roses of the spring!
