She had taken possession of the sumac. The location was her selection and he loudly applauded her choice. She placed the first twig, and after examining it carefully, he spent the day carrying her others just as much alike as possible. If she used a dried grass blade, he carried grass blades until she began dropping them on the ground.

故事是讲一只雄的主红雀住在一棵树上,旁边是农夫和他的妻子。主红雀唱歌来找寻配偶。农夫和妻子被它的歌声吸引,想看看它在做什么。主红雀真的找到了配偶,而且因为它的歌声,农夫和妻子的婚姻生活又充满了活力。这是一个快乐的爱情故事。

The Song of the Cardinal is about a big male Cardinal who lives in a tree near a farmer and his wife. The Cardinal immediately starts to sing to find himself a mate. Meanwhile the farmer and his wife enjoy watching this boisterous bird and seeing what he does. He does find a mate and through his singing the farmer and his wife's marriage is rejuvenated. It's a happy little parallel love story that will sweep you off your feet!

吉恩·斯特拉顿·波特(1863-1924年),美国小说家和自然主义者。从其伤感的浪漫主义小说《无法无天》(1904年)和《肢体残缺的女孩》(1909年)中可以感知到她对大自然和野生生命丰富的了解和热爱。吉恩瓦·格蕾斯斯特·拉顿出生于印地安那州的瓦伯什郡,靠近林波洛斯特沼泽,因此她的大部分小说都以此为背景。1886年她与查尔斯·D·波特结婚。她最初在杂志上发表描写大自然的文章,还配有她自己画的插图或自拍的照片。

Gene Stratton-Porter (August 17, 1863 – December 6, 1924) was an American author, amateur naturalist, wildlife photographer, and one of the earliest women to form a movie studio and production company. She wrote some best-selling novels and well-received columns in national magazines, such as McCalls. Her works were translated into several languages, including Braille, and Stratton-Porter was estimated to have had 51 million readers around the world.

The Cardinal was only a yearling, yet his crest flared high, his beard was crisp and black, and he was a very prodigy in size and colouring. Fathers of his family that had accomplished many migrations appeared small beside him, and coats that had been shed season after season seemed dull compared with his. It was as if a pulsing heart of flame passed by when he came winging through the orchard.
