Aidee read it in Ken Follet’s ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ and it remained engraved in her heart for it bore meanings diverse. On the blog, for reference purpose.
“A Lark caught in a hunter’s net
Sang sweeter then than ever,
As if the falling melody
Might wing and net dissever.
At dusk, the hunter took his prey
The Lark his freedom never.
All birds and men are sure to die
But songs may live forever.”
– Ken Follet (The Pillars of the Earth)
