An E-ANTHOLOGY of AVIAN POETRY
Under each bird name, the poems are arranged chronologically; first lines are also given below each poem
title, as a potentially helpful spur to the memory. For untitled poems, the first line only is given instead (and identified as such via
enclosing quotation marks). I would eventually like to gloss/annotate all of the texts herein--to make it a true "anthology"--but for
now I've merely added comments immediately after a few of the entries, in parentheses, as they occurred to me.
NOTE: These poetry texts are provided only "for purposes such as criticism, comment . . . teaching, scholarship, or research."
Oops--Let's try that BIRD Species/Type INDEX. . . .
NEW (5/08): I've divided this "POEMS" section into EIGHT separate
pages, for quicker loading. . . .
