type story here Gull

O the wonder of it all
To watch the seabird raise and fall
With the wind beneath his wings
Over the water he glades, searching for things

As each wave rolls on by
He seems to float rather then fly
Stronger the wind blows, over ones face
The seabird seems to stall in place

Then again he swoops around
With an eye, the fish he has found
Down he goes with such flair
As though he fell right out of the air

But up he comes as he swallows down
Then continues again, to fly around
