Some cool ritual of swallows I learned from a buddy...really neat I think

Miracle of Nature

The swallows of Capistrano
Return there every year
They make the perilous journey
As all the people cheer.

It is a miracle of nature
To see these flocks of birds
Rebuild their nest in the mission
It is a sight beyond words.

A mission once used for people
Now is home to a bunch of flocks
For the earthquake of 1812
Tore down most except for the locks.

It truly is a sight to see
This journey that they make
Just to live out the summer
A call for people to wake.

It seems to be a ritual
These birds make when they leave
They circle the mission
To say goodbye as through the sky they weave.
