Sea Gulls
By Mary Carolyn Davies
From “Wanderings”

“I AM the white gull overhead!”
    To my love I said;
And stretched my arms and cried
    With the swift gull’s cry.
But I shall have no freedom till I die;        5
I shall know never lift of sky
    Or sweep of sea:
I am chained cruelly by his love of me.
