Стр. 188 - As who pursued with yell and blow Still treads the shadow of his foe, And forward bends his head, The ship drove fast, loud roared the blast, And southward aye we fled.

But in the fisherman's cottage There shines a ruddier light, And a little face at the window, Peers out into the night. Close, close it is pressed to the window As if those childish eyes Were looking into the darkness, To see some form arise. And a woman's waving shadow Is passing to and fro...
Стр. 145 - The great blue heron (Ardea herodias) is about four feet in length from the point of the bill to the end of the tail, and nearly six feet across the wings.
