Here you will find the Poem The Birdcatcher of poet Ralph Hodgson

The Birdcatcher

When flighting time is on I go 
With clap-net and decoy, 
A-fowling after goldfinches 
And other birds of joy; 
I lurk among the thickets of 
The Heart where they are bred, 
And catch the twittering beauties as 
They fly into my Head.
