THE YELLOWHAMMER, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: With rural admixture of shrill and sweet
Last Line: While from the totter-grass gazes the humble hare.
Alternate Author Name(s): Blunden, Edmund
Subject(s): Birds


With rural admixture of shrill and sweet,
Forging his fairy fetter for the ear
Of passing folks, from pollards close the wheat,
The yellowhammer gives the sun a cheer.
Delighted with his leafy maze
Like dancing elves he nods and sways,
And now trills out a chime that's fair,
And now grates out what he might spare,
While from the totter-grass gazes the humble hare.
