C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Whip-poor-will
 
  The moan of the whip-poor-will from the hillside; the boding cry of the tree-toad, that harbinger of storm; the dreary hooting of the screechowl.
Irving.    
  1
        Where deep and misty shadows float
In forest’s depths is heard thy note.
Like a lost spirit, earthbound still,
Art thou, mysterious whip-poor-will.
Marie Le Baron.    
  2
        But the whip-poor-will wails on the moor,
  And day has deserted the west:
The moon glimmers down thro’ the vines at my door
  And the robin has flown to her nest.
James G. Clarke.
