Cuckoo Song is a book written by Frances Hardinge. It was published in , and was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. Synopsis Edit The first things to shift were the doll's eyes, the beautiful grey-green glass eyes. Slowly they swivelled, until their gaze was resting on Triss's face. Then the tiny mouth moved, opened to : Frances Hardinge. In post-World War I England, eleven-year-old Triss nearly drowns in a millpond known as "The Grimmer" and emerges with memory gaps, aware that something's terri.

Cuckoo! cuckoo! Cuckoo! cuckoo! Over the buttercup hill. Oh my bird, oh my bird from my sight faded, Now can I see thee no more; Gone like the light which a tempest has shaded, Lost like a wave on the shore. Cuckoo! cuckoo! Cuckoo! cuckoo! Now I can see thee no more. Where art thou once again calling and dancing Like a wild fay in thy flight! Genre/Form: Poems Publishers' catalogues Publishers' catalogs: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Tynan, Katharine, Cuckoo songs. London, E.

  So in fact this is a song about a song—that of the cuckoo, whose call is echoed in the structure of the canon. If you’ve heard a cuckoo clock, then you’ve heard an extremely fair likeness of the common cuckoo’s call. Extensive alliteration, assonance, and a rollicking rhythm contribute to the musicality of the poem. The ads for "The Sterile Cuckoo" remind us that you can fall in love for the first time only once in your life. True enough, but that begs the question of whether Pookie and Jerry are really in love. I doubt it. Their relationship is based more on need: her need to be loved, and his need to make love.

A combination of two traditional English cuckoo songs: the lyrics to My Bonny Cuckoo from the Shirley Collins version, and some lyrics from the oft-recorded The Cuckoo or The Coo-Coo Bird. The cuckoo, with its distinctive appearance and striking nest-usurping behaviour, features heavily in folklore, and is seen as the bringer of spring.

Cuckoo Song is a novel that reveals its mysteries gradually, and if I were to elaborate further on the story I’d run the risk of taking the pleasure of discovery away from you. As I said above, the first section of the novel terrified me, and some of that has to do with the fact that I was able to join Triss in her fear and uncertainty.
