Gamaun is a dainty steed,
  Strong, black, and of a noble breed,
    Full of fire, and full of bone,
      With all his line of fathers known;
        Fine his nose, his nostrils thin,
          But blown abroad by the pride within;
            His mane is like a river flowing,
              And his eyes like embers glowing
                In the darkness of the night,
                  And his pace as swift as light.
      - The Blood Horse [Horses]

Oh, the summer night
  Has a smile of light
    And she sits on a sapphire throne.
      - The Nights [Summer]

In the hollow tree, in the old gray tower,
  The spectral Owl doth dwell;
    Dull, hated, despised, in the sunshine hour,
      But at the dusk--he's abroad and well!
        Not a bird of the forest e'er mates with him--
          All mock him outright, by day:
            But at night, when the woods grow still and dim,
              The boldest will shrink away!
                O, when the night falls, and roosts the fowl,
                  Then, then, is the reign of the Horned Owl!
      - The Owl [Owls]

I never was on the dull, tame shore,
  But I loved the great sea more and more.
      - The Sea [Ocean]

The sea! the sea! the open sea!
  The blue, the fresh, the ever free!
    Without a mark, without a bound,
      It runneth the earth's wide regions round;
        It plays with the clouds; it mocks the skies;
          Or like a cradled creature lies.
      - The Sea [Ocean]

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!
      - The Stormy Petrel [Sea Birds]
