Marsh Wren! I think that is what you meant too Shoveler lol.

Good timber does not grow with ease:

The stronger wind, the stronger trees.

The further sky, the greater length,

The more the storm, the more their strength.

Mocker! I never would have guessed if it weren't for the white..

The stronger wind, the stronger trees.

The further sky, the greater length,

The more the storm, the more their strength.
