Bird of Paradise
 
Those golden birds that, in the spice-time, drop
About the gardens, drunk with that sweet food
Whose scent hath lur’d them o’er the summer flood;
And those that under Araby’s soft sun
Build their high nests of budding cinnamon.
        Moore—Lalla Rookh. The Veiled Prophet of Khorassan.
