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.

The lichen rustles against my cheek, But the heart of the rock is still ; With
chattering voice the cedars speak, Crouched gray on the barren hill. “ A land-
wind snarls on the clifl's sheer edge ; Below, the smitten sea Comes fawning over
a sunken ledge And cowers whimperingly. “ In the sultry wood lies a restless
hush, Not a twitter falls from the sky; Hidden are swallow. sparrow, and thrush,
And the sea-birds only cry.” A correction of the last line, making it read “ And only
the seabirds cry," ...

But a cold sea-fret came shuddering by, And veiled the view of the distant shore ;
Weirdly and wildly the seabirds' cry Was borne along with the billows' roar. Oh,
wives that wait by the ingleside, And bairnies that laugh at the lapping tide,
There's woe in the waves this morning! Only a sea-bird hovering still, Heedless,
unharmed by the sudden squall ; A rudderless boat that drifts at will Through
pitiless waters — and that is all ! Alas ! the wives that wait on the quay, The
bairnies that gaze ...

What is so white where the seabirds cry, Where the breakers dash and the foam
springs high ? The old King went to the rocks and cried, " They have come as
they left us, side by side." Fast fell his tears as he whispered low, " My boy, my girl
, ye have kept your vow." What was the cry which the old King heard ? An infant's
wail or an ocean bird ? A living babe in the dead embrace Looked with blue eyes
in the old King's face. The tears from his eyes gushed forth anew. One child was

... 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.
