    Over the land freckled with snow half-thawed
    The speculating rooks at their nests cawed
    Edward Thomas (1878–1917)

    Some critics are like chimneysweepers; they put out the fire below, and frighten the swallows from the nests above; they scrape a long time in the chimney, cover themselves with soot, and bring nothing away but a bag of cinders, and then sing out from the top of the house, as if they had built it.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)

    He put before them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.”
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 13:31,32.
