    Then from the neighboring thicket the mockingbird, wildest of
    singers,
    Swinging aloft on a willow spray that hung o'er the water.
    Shook from his little throat such floods of delirious music,
    That the whole air and the woods and the waves seemed silent to
    listen.

Winged mimic of the woods! thou motley fool!
Who shall thy gay buffoonery describe?
Thine ever-ready notes read more

Winged mimic of the woods! thou motley fool!
Who shall thy gay buffoonery describe?
Thine ever-ready notes of ridicule
Pursue thy fellows still with jest and jibe:
Wit, sophist, songster, Yorick of thy tribe;
Thou sportive satirist of Nature's school;
To thee the palm of scoffing we ascribe,
Arch-mocker and mad abbot of misrule!
