SWALLOW, SWALLOW

[47]

Swallow, Swallow, neighbor Swallow,

Starting on your autumn flight,

Pause a moment at my window,

Twitter softly a good night.


Now the summer days are ended,

All your duties are well done,

And the little homes you've builded

Have grown empty, one by one.


Swallow, Swallow, neighbor Swallow,

Are you ready for your flight?

Are the little coats completed?

Are the feathered caps all right?


Are the young wings strong and steady

For their flight to warmer sky?

Come again in early springtime.

Until then, good-by, good-by.
