“When the Snow Was Deep (Feeding the Birds)”


"When the snow was deep, I sprinkled crumbs for the birds to eat. They would chirp for food -- The bluebirds and sparrows were in pleasant mood. They would go and come back, but not all would go, Some would stay... and eat the crumbs...."


Reportedly written when Bell was only seven years old. - RBW
