Only a Fiddler

Excerpt from Only a Fiddler: A Danish Romance Hen the snow melts and the woods again become green, the storks return from their long journey. They have been in far Africa, have drunk of the waters of the Nile, and rested on the pyramids. The inhabitants of the Sicilian coasts and of the promontory of Messina relate how, at a certain time every year, the storks come over the sea in great flocks to rest themselves on the slopes of the mountains, which are then wholly covered by these creatures. Suddenly they again arise, and wing their way toward the north, over the snow and clouds of the Alps, where the great multitude divides itself into smaller companies. The smallest knows, as well as the largest, how to direct itself toward the land where it has its home: and it is not the smallest band which flies toward little Denmark. Each one knows the bay 'whither he must direct his course, knows the clump of trees, and the white chimney on the indented gable of the hall, where the empty nest awaits him. Strange. Mystical bird Upon thy back rides spring into the land the forests become green, the grass grows more joyously, the air becomes warmer.
