Page 91 - In the marshes flames of fringed azaleas and the tracings of budding birch and willow outspread like the sticks of fans. At their feet, shouldering their way upward, big dock leaves — vigorous, lusty leaves — eager to flaunt their verdure in the new awakening. Everywhere the joyous songs of busy birds fresh from the Southland — • flying shuttles these, of black, blue and brown, weaving homes in the loom of branch and bud.
