C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Crow
 
  To shoot at crows is powder flung away.
Gay.    
  1
        Even the blackest of them all, the crow,
Renders good service as your man-at-arms,
Crushing the beetle in his coat of mail,
And crying havoc on the slug and snail.
Longfellow.    
  2
        If the old shower-foretelling crow
  Croak not her boding note in vain,
To-morrow’s eastern storm shall strow
  The woods with leaves, with weeds the main.
Francis Horace.
