Quote #4

   Better than all treasures
    That in books are found, (98-99)

Books are great, as far as our speaker is concerned, but (you guessed it) this bird song is even better. The knowledge you find when you read might be a treasure (Shmoop approves—that's our whole thing too!), but like all other kinds of human art, it's not nearly as awe-inspiring as the song of the skylark.
