In a Country Church The dry whisper of unseen wings, Bats not angels, in the high roof. R S Thomas

d-bat02

Far different there from all that charm’d before,
The various terrors of that horrid shore;
Those matted woods where birds forget to sing.
But silent bats in drowsy clusters cling.
Oliver Goldsmith, The Deserted Village
