Watch it do what?
Chris: Watch it stand there Larry
I am watching.
Chris: I think this is an albatross Michael. We don't get many of these on the streets of Bath..

We should free this goose!
Chris: It might be a hundred years old Philine, there is no way of telling..
The Dodo used to walk around,
And take the sun and air.
The sun yet warms his native ground—
The Dodo is not there!

The voice which used to squawk and squeak
Is now forever dumb—
Yet may you see his bones and beak
All in the Mu-se-um.
Chris: Find me an albatross poem!

I wonder of you will be stuffed and preserved for all to admire? I'm often told to get stuffed.
Chris: Yes it looks as if that sort of fate is inevitable for me

Not moving either!
Chris: In a case for all time..
What's that little grown chicken? An albatross?
Chris: I take it to be an Albatross Claudio. Personally I have never seen one..

At length did cross an Albatross,
Thorough the fog it came;
As it had been a Christian soul,
We hailed it in God's name.

It ate the food it ne'er had eat,
And round and round it flew.
The ice did split with a thunder-fit;
The helmsman steered us through!

And a good south wind sprung up behind;
The Albatross did follow,
And every day, for food or play,
Came to the mariner's hollo!

In mist or cloud, on mast or shroud,
It perched for vespers nine;
Whiles all the night, through fog-smoke white,
Glimmered the white moonshine."

'God save thee, ancient Mariner,
From the fiends that plague thee thus!—
Why look'st thou so?'—"With my crossbow
I shot the Albatross."

From the Ancient Mariner
Chris: Brilliant - thank you!
a relative of a Dodo Bird?
