Dryden and Chimney Swifts at Twilight in a Small Southern Town
The Travelers' Inn
Dozens of swifts swirl around the chimney of an old shop in downtown Hartselle, Alabama at twilight. Some fly down the chimney, while others circle round before departing to their own secret roost. It's a strange sight, bringing to mind John Dryden and his description of swallows in autumn from the poem, "The Hind and the Panther".
