Continuing a Spring Tradition: Voice of the Turtle

Every year prior to the Detroit Tigers first spring training game long time radio announcer would recite "the voice of the turtle."  The passage is from the Song of Solomon of the Old Testament. Here it is:

"For lo, the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone;
the flowers appear on earth;
the time of singing of birds is come ,
and the voice of the turtle is heard  in our land"
