"The authorship of these beautiful verses has been most truculently fought about; but whoever wrote them (and it seems as if this Logan had) they are lovely. What time the pea puts on the bloom Though fliest the vocal vale, An annual guest, in other lands Another spring to hail. Sweet bird! thy bower is ever green, The sky is ever clear; Thou hast no sorrow in thy song, No winter in thy year. O could I fly, I"d fly with thee! We"d make on joyful wing Our annual visit o"er the globe, Companions of the spring."

Notes
RLS believes the poem to have been written by John Logan (as does Arthur Quiller-Couch in The Oxford Book of English Verse and www.wikisource.org), but the footnote p 330 Booth/Mehew and also the Wikipedia entry on Michael Bruce attributes it to Bruce and that Logan appropriated it as his own. Hence RLS's comments about the authorship. For this RED entry I have attributed it to Bruce.
