“Between the work and warning the father found. His cheeks were wet with tears, and his hands trebled. He kissed his son(Good-bye, if he have known it) Rose on his wing, flew on ahead, as fearful. As any bird launching the litter nestlings.”
Question: why he was cried? Did he happy to get out from the jail or worried about his son?
Answer: I think his happy to get out from the jail and also worried about his son, because his son was young, and he may not control the wings very well.
