Pacific Gray Whale

Famous quotes containing the words pacific, gray and/or whale:

    The doctor of Geneva stamped the sand
    That lay impounding the Pacific swell,
    Patted his stove-pipe hat and tugged his shawl.

    Far from the sun and summer-gale
    In thy green lap was Nature’s Darling laid,
    What time, where lucid Avon stray’d,
    To him the mighty mother did unveil
    Her awful face:
    —Thomas Gray (1716–1771)

    And one rose in a tent of sea and gave
    A darkening shudder; water fell away;
    The whale stood shining, and then sank in spray.
