“True hope is swift, and flies with swallow’s wings …” -William Shakespeare
We’re launching our Blue Hour Press logo for our soon to be released full length poetry books and upcoming Anthologies.
The swallow’s northward migration is a symbol of spring as well as a symbol of hope because they are able to return home after traveling such long distances. Sailors considered them a sign of when they were nearing their journeys end. They’d see the bird’s feathers flashing iridescent blue as they approached land. This classic symbol combines thoughts of home, warmth and a journey with sense of wild adventure. As publishers we hope to bring readers, writers and artists a bit of hope and adventure.
And we also PUT A BIRD ON IT, because we are Oregonians, after all.
