1646. Flying Fish
 
By Mary McNeil Fenollosa
 
 
OUT where the sky and the sky-blue sea
  Merge in a mist of sheen,
There started a vision of silver things,
A leap and a quiver, a flash of wings
  The sky and the sea between.        5
 
Is it of birds from the blue above,
  Or fish from the depths that be?
    Or is it the ghosts
    In silver hosts
  Of birds that were drowned at sea?        10
