"Yellow-billed Cuckoo and Sassafras"
“The Cuckoo is always associated in my mind with deep, thickly leaved, cool places, where moss and wild flowers cover the damp earth, where silence reigns and solitude is unbroken. It is from such places that the weather prophet booms his never-failing predictions of rain…I think of him as very near to the heart of nature, slipping gracefully through his green haunts.”
