Adorable little blue bird plate <> I know the song that the bluebird is singing, Out in the apple-tree where he is swinging; Brave little fellow, the skies may look dreary; Nothing cares he while his heart is so cheery. Hark! how the music leaps out from his throat, Hark! was there ever so merry a note? Listen awhile and you’ll hear what he’s saying, Up in the apple-tree swinging and swaying...' ~Emily H. Miller, from 'The Bluebird' (bird, decor, motif)
