What came first, the seabird's cry or the soul Imagined in the dawn cold when it
cried? How habitable is perfected form? And how inhabited the windy light?
There are no answers, only questions and suggestions, but in that Platonic vision
Heaney's imagined soul-seabird is not only the great boundary-crosser, but
linked to the emergence and genesis of things. The seabird's cry comes from the
beginning of the world. When any kind of seabirds first materialize in written
English, in two ...

She was flying,skimming the ground withno trackunder her, not evena
hoverboard,keeping herself aloft bysheer willpower andthe wind in heroutspread
jacket. Sheskirted the edge ofa massive cliffthat overlooked a huge, blackocean.
A flockof seabirds pursuedher, theirwild screams beating at her ears like Dr.
Cable's razoredged voice. Suddenly, the stony cliffs beneath her cracked and
fissured. A huge rift opened up, the ocean rushing in with a roar that drowned the
seabirds' cries.

... seabirds and painting their glorious flight across the changeable sky—
sometimes gray, wild and angry, and sometimes so calm and starkly beautiful
that it hurt his heart. When Bronwen Evans first saw his paintings, she stared at
them for a while, then she recited some lines from a poem. A sight so wide it fills
the eyes, its vast horizon meets a sky that stretches to infinity. That holds my heart
. That sets me free. Timeless echoes in my ears; a haunting melody, ten thousand
sea birds cry ...

Japh. Alas ! where shall they dwell ? Hark, hark ! Deep sounds, and deeper still,
Are howling from the mountain's bosom : There's not a breath of wind upon the
hill, Yet quivers every leaf, and drops each blossom : arth groans as if beneath a
heavy load. Noah. Hark, hark ! the sea-birds cry ! In clouds A MYSTERY. 190.

When the tide retreated, the shingle gave way to muddy sand and revealed the
debris of a whole new world to me: Irish moss, moon jelly, sea kelp, razor-clams
and cockle-shells, sand dollars and frisbees, blue nylon rope and dead sea
urchins. In the evenings, when I walked along the path of crushed, purple-ringed
mussel-shells and grey whelks, I would hear the sea birds cry, plaintive calls of
cormorants and blacktipped herring-gulls as sad as our uprooted, overshadowed
lives.

The night is over like a dream: The seabirds cry and dip themselves: And in the
early sunlight, steam The newly bared and dripping shelves, Around whose
verge the glassy wave With lisping wash is heard to lave; While, on the white
tower lifted high, The circling lenses flash and pass With yellow light in faded
glass And sickly shine against the sky. 2 As the steady lenses circle With a frosty
gleam of glass; And the clear bell chimes, And the oil brims over the lip of the
burner, Quiet and ...

A Story of Second Chances Betsy Duffey, Laurie Myers. Chris felt his world
shifting like sand beneath his feet, just like one time when a school trip had taken
him to the ocean. He hadn't thought of the ocean in years, but suddenly he could
almost taste the salt air and hear the seabirds cry above him. He prayed a prayer,
his third in over a decade, but the best prayer that he could imagine. Thank you,
God. He makes III.E. lie down in green pastures.

She called out for help, but her voice faded among the muffled calls of the
seabirds and the waves that exploded against the shore, ever closer. It was
unlikely anyone would come this way where it was all moor and heather,
especially today. The cawing of the seabirds, the cry of the curlew, the twittering
of smaller birds, the sigh of the wind, the thunder of the ocean, were hushed and
for a time she seemed trapped in a place she didn't recognise. Even the strange,
silent ribbons of mist ...

The people flung their caps in the air, and cried, long live Napoleon, Emperor of
the French. But over the spirit of his dream there came a change. His star, which
had shone resplendent on all the landscape, was shorn of its grave of him who
made the world tremble. “Hark, comes there from the pyramids, Or from Siberia's
wastes of snow, Or Europe's fields, a voice that bids The world he awed to mourn
him 7 No. The only, the perpetual dirge, 'That's heard there is the seabird's cry,
