Literary Calligraphy by Susan Loy


Bird Selections- "TO MY SISTER"

To My Sister British poet William Wordsworth wrote this poem for his sister to recall a day in which their souls were "tuned to love." William and Dorothy Wordsworth are famous literary siblings.

William wrote, "Sister of my Soul! Elsewhere have streams of gratitude been breath'd to thee for all the early tenderness which I from thee imbibed." The "elsewhere" he refers to includes "Tintern Abbey," four other poems, as well as "To My Sister," composed in March 1798 and published in Lyrical Ballads.

Wordsworth's redbreast would have been the European robin, Erithacus rubecula, one of Britain's most dearly loved birds. The European larch is Larix decidua, one of the first trees to turn green in late March.
