the conference of the birds

I'd rather die deceived by dreams than give
My heart to home and trade and never live

the conference of the birds is one of those works it seems easy to pass by, esp if you're not reading translated or 'historical' poetry. which is a shame as it's great. you could go for the full fat version or maybe start off with peter sis's beautifully illustrated version. definitely one for the bird lovers
