Chickadee's Winter Reverie ...
“Our love is a dream, but in my reverie
I can see that this love was meant for me …
My dreams are as worthless as tin to me
Without you, life will never begin to be
So love me as I love you in my reverie
Make my dreams a reality, let’s dispense with formality
Come to me in my reverie …”
~ “My Reverie”
~ 1938 popular song, lyrics by Larry Clinton, melody based on 1890 piano piece “Reverie” by French classical composer Claude Debussy
~ recorded by artists including Bing Crosby, Glenn Miller, Eddie Duchin, Tony Bennett, Sarah Vaughn & Ella Fitzgerald
Sweet Black-capped Chickadee seems to be in its own winter reverie on a rare warm February day at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
This North American songbird is the symbol of Massachusetts, Maine and New Brunswick, Canada.
