Towery city and branchy between towers; Cuckoo-echoing, bell-swarme' d, lark-charme' d, rook- racked, river-rounded.
Invite the rook who high amid the boughs, In early spring, his airy city builds, And ceaseless caws amusive.james thomson
A grasshopper shrilled in a tuft at her feet and was answered by other shrillings among the gorse bushes; a solitary rook flapped heavily overhead, and a pair of goldfinches twittered among the thistle-down; there was no other sound except the scarcely perceptible never-ceasing sighing of the wind in the pines and its rustling of acres of heath-bells.flora thompson
