the Thorn bird

by morgaine

Age Group: Adult



There's a legend about a bird...
which sings just once in its life
more sweetly than any other
creature on the face of the earth.
From the moment it leaves the nests
it searches for a thorn three and
doesn't rest until it's found one.

There singing among the savage branches,
it impales itself upon the longest, sharpest spine
And dying it rises above it's one agony
to out-carol the lark and the nightingale
and the hole world stills to listen and
God in his Heaven smiles.

For the best is bought only at the cost of great pain
or so says the legend...
but when we press the thorn to our breast we know,
we understand, but still we do it.




Author's Notes: Taken from the thorn bird book author is Colleen McCullough.
This is a book that needs to be read.
This is my favorite book.
