Quote of the Day (Ogden Nash, on ‘The Whimper of the Sea-Gull’)

"Hark to the whimper of the sea-gull;
He weeps because he's not an ea-gull.
Suppose you were, you silly sea-gull,
Could you explain it to your she-gull?”—American poet Ogden Nash (1902-1971), “The Sea-Gull,” in On Wings of Song: Poems About Birds, edited by J. D. McClatchy (2000)
