CYRANO DE BERGERAC ACT 5

"Ay, see how brave they fall,
In their last journey downward from the bough,
To rot within the clay; yet, lovely still,
Hiding the horror of the last decay,
With all the wayward grace of careless flight!"
I think that Cyrano finds them a metaphor to life in general and perhaps a little foreshadowing of his own impending death.
