Graphic from the book for the top of even-numbered pages

The Red Bird.

    Be the weather never so cold, we hear
    Your voice in the tree-tops, trombone clear: 
"Come out in the bitter!"__"Now what do you
fear ?' 
But ever your challenge, bright trumpeter, varies: 
"Come hither !"__"Come hurry!"__"Come see the
green prairies!" 
"Wild roses !"__"Primroses!"__"Blue vetches !"__
"S__o n__e__a__r!"

__Amanda T. Jones.
