"Just as the dawn chorus of the birds herald a new day, so the wheel of life inexorably turns as it's designed to do. Just as the onset of rain invokes tears of the soul and regrets of the heart, and the loving smile of the sun radiates a warmth that can only live within, so the hierarchy of Earth's elements combine to govern our stars and influence our behaviour. Just as ever cast clouds darken our doorstep and finally break our hearts, a new day is heralded by Him who made all days and we are called to give account of the old. Thus birds are inextricably linked in Nature to the dawn of mankind and the finish of one's day."
