Nimbly they seized and secreted their prey,Alive and wriggling in the elastic net,Which Nature hung beneath their grasping beaks;Till, swoln with captures, the unwieldy burdenClogg'd their slow flight, as heavily to land,These mighty hunters of the deep return'd.There on the cragged cliffs they perch'd at ease,Gorging their hapless victims one by one;Then full and weary, side by side, they slept,Till evening roused them to the chase again.james montgomery

The mighty heart of the nation must be kept sound, so that its pulses, when once roused, will, like the ocean in its strength, sweep all before it. So long as the moral tone is preserved, the sun of our glory will not set; there will come no national decay and death.
