MARTLETS
[ Also see Animals Birds ]

This guest of summer,
  The temple-haunting martlet, does approve
    By his loved mansionry that the heaven's breath
      Smells wooingly here. No jutty, frieze,
        Buttress, nor coign of vantage, but this bird
          Hath made his pendent bed and procreant cradle.
            Where they most breed and haunt, I have observed
              The air is delicate.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Banquo at I, vi)

What many men desire--that 'many' may be meant
  By the fool multitude that choose by show,
    Not learning more than the fond eye doth teach,
      Which pries not to th' interior, but like the martlet
        Builds in the weather on the outward wall,
          Even in the force and road of casualty.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merchant of Venice
         (Arragon at II, ix)
