I heard a little bird say. . .
I had to look it up
the definition of augury
and I'm still confused
Lol, same here. Songs about omens? Could be a tough one.
That is, messages from birds.
About not getting the message. . .
Songs dealing with messages from birds?
A wiki article: Augury - Wikipedia
In Roman times, it was taking signs from the movement of birds. More generally, in Anglo-Saxon and other Indo-European mythology, you receive messages from birds for simply being birds and not souls of others or what not.
thanks for the reply. It will probably take me a couple days to read and try to comprehend. Forgive my ignorance but I posted a song about a blackbird because you did and I like the song
p.s. I'm going back to the morning river train thread
Raven-headed skyline. . .
This is a hodge-podge of a Kentish and North American myth which kind of works and kind of doesn't. The songwriter was a nurse in Vancouver who was born and raised in Southern England.
In Kent, it is considered a sign of good fortune for a sparrow to fly in through the window. A swallow entering the same way is considered a bad omen. This myth doesn't exist in North America, so a different bird was selected upon editing. The bluebird is a sign of arcadia, a place to settle down because it is sparsely settled. Bluebirds, however, avoid human settlement and they would never sit on your windowsill. In that way, the song falls apart. But the song is still a classic.
The bird is the word!!!
this place is turning into the lounge
This one sure fits:
At least we're not being pretentious.
As I said in the other thread, there's enough of these threads going. Run those threads out before making new ones.
