Fowles in the Frith

Wherein Ye Olde Webmistress of said blog is going out of her mind trying to sleep while a hundred thousand birds hold speed-dating sessions outside. And y'all KNOW I love birds, but this is Madness, I tell you, Madness! I'm going to buy some Gorram earplugs today, I'm going mad with the constant noise!


Jan Fyt. Bird Concert. 17th-c.

Fowles in the Frith

Fowles in the frith,
The fisshes in the flood,
And I mon waxe wood
Much sorwe I walke with
For beste of boon and blood.
 

birds/woods

must go mad

I never tried speed-dating, but I'd be willing to bet if the participants chirped like birds no one would notice the difference.

I haven't tried it either, but I bet you're right!
