The nest in the rosebush : for piano / Miriam Hyde.

Library shelf no. 786.2088054/HYD 10 [Not for loan]

Work Overview

When Miriam Hyde went to the Ursuline Convent in Ashbury (a suburb of Sydney) in November 1964 to examine piano students, she was shown a nest in a rose bush, containing baby birds. She was very touched by this incident in Nature and wrote this piece promptly to send to the staff and their pupils.
Two years later when it was first published, Miss Hyde sent a printed copy to the Convent. It happened to be the same time of year. She received a letter of thanks, which included this paragraph:
'I love the little piece, and never walk among those roses without remembering it and its inspiration. The little birds are still around, but too wise now, ever to build again in that rose bush!'.
