“Not an angel of the air, Bird melodious or bird fair, Be absent hence” Shakespeare’s “The Bridal Song”
Seeing as how I’m doing this today, rather than a head of time, I thought I would take up the kindly offer of @HollowCrownFans‘ to join in on their themed Shakespeare Sundays. This week it is wings, and I’ve taken it from “The Bridal Song”.
There has been a long history of animals being mistaken for the mystical. Birds for angels. Manatees for mermaids. I rather like how Shakespeare doesn’t kid himself, it’s a bird- but it still a pleasant part of life…
Unless you have a hang over, and your new flat is in the dawn chorus central of Cork ;D
