John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:5452
AUTHOR:Thomas Moore (1779–1852)
QUOTATION:The bird let loose in Eastern skies,
  Returning fondly home,
Ne’er stoops to earth her wing, nor flies
  Where idle warblers roam;
But high she shoots through air and light,
  Above all low delay,
Where nothing earthly bounds her flight,
  Nor shadow dims her way.
ATTRIBUTION:Oh that I had Wings.
