Discusses a poetic exchange begun in 1875 in the columns of the Glasgow Weekly Mail in 1875 between two Victorian Scottish women poets, Marion Bernstein, author of Mirren's Musings (1876), and Mary Inglis, author of Croonings (1876), in which the two poets offer alternative interpretations of the swallow as a symbol of fleeting friendship.
