SEA BIRDS
[ Also see Animals Birds ]

How joyously the young sea-mew
  Lay dreaming on the waters blue,
    Whereon our little bark had thrown
      A little shade, the only one;
        But shadows ever man pursue.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning, The Sea-Mew

Vainly the fowler's eye
  Might mark thy distant flight to do thee wrong,
    As, darkly painted on the crimson sky,
      Thy figure floats along.
      - William Cullen Bryant, To a Water Fowl

When seagulls follow a trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.
      - Eric Cantona,
        to the media at the end of a press conference

Up and down! Up and down!
  From the base of the wave to the billow's crown;
    And amidst the flashing and feathery foam
      The Stormy Petrel finds a home,--
        A home, if such a place may be,
          For her who lives on the wide, wide sea,
            On the craggy ice, in the frozen air,
              And only seeketh her rocky lair
                To warm her young and to teach them spring
                  At once o'er the waves on their stormy wing!
      - Barry Cornwall (pseudonym of Bryan Waller Procter),
        The Stormy Petrel

Between the two seas the sea-bird's wing makes halt,
  Wind-weary; while with lifting head he waits
    For breath to reinspire him from the gates
      That open still toward sunrise on the vault
        High-domed of morning.
      - Algernon Charles Swinburne,
        Songs of the Spring Tides--Introductory lines to Birthday Ode to Victor Hugo
