ROOKS
[ Also see Animals Birds ]

Those Rooks, dear, from morning till night,
  They seem to do nothing but quarrel and fight,
    And wrangle and jangle, and plunder.
      - Dinah Maria Mulock (used pseudonym Mrs. Craik),
        Thirty Years--The Blackbird and the Rooks

Invite the rook who high amid the boughs,
  In early spring, his airy city builds,
    And ceaseless caws amusive.
      - James Thomson (1), Seasons--Spring
         (l. 756)

Where in venerable rows
  Widely waving oaks enclose
    The moat of yonder antique hall,
      Swarm the rooks with clamorous call;
        And, to the toils of nature true,
          Wreath their capacious nests anew.
      - Thomas Warton, the Younger, Ode X
