A story of two children and the death of a pet bird. Later, hearing doves singing, "their faces seemed to reflect from somewhere an indefinable look of wistful unbelief, of sad conviction, as if knowing this could never be."

In the Manchester Guardian (October 6, 1927), Day's End and Other Stories (1928).
