PIGEONS
[ Also see Animals Birds ]

Wood-pigeons cooed there, stock-doves nestled there;
  My trees were full on songs and flowers and fruit,
    Their branches spread a city to the air.
      - Christina Georgina Rossetti,
        From House to Home (st. 7)

(Celia:) Here come Monsieur Le Beau.
  (Rosalind:) With his mouth full of news.
    (Celia:) Which he will put on us as pigeons feed their young.
      (Rosalind:) Then shall we be news-crammed.
      - William Shakespeare, As You Like It
         (Celia & Rosalind at I, ii)

Hold, there is the very remuneration I had of thy master, thou halfpenny purse of wit, thou pigeon-egg of discretion.
      - William Shakespeare, Love's Labor's Lost
         (Costard at V, i)

This fellow pecks up wit, as pigeons pease,
  And utters it again when God doth please.
      - William Shakespeare, Love's Labor's Lost
         (Berowne at V, ii)

'Tis a bird I love, with its brooding note,
  And the trembling throb in its mottled throat;
    There's a human look in its swelling breast,
      And the gentle curve of its lowly crest;
        And I often stop with the fear I feel--
          He runs so close to the rapid wheel.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis, The Belfry Pigeon
