Has aught been heard of the Fulgory
Bird in the isles to the west of Man?
For hither the gilded galleys of men
have sailed since the world began.
With painted sails and mariners’ songs
We come with trumpets and brazen gongs
To procure that for which His Majesty longs,
The remarkable Fulgory Bird.
“The Fulgory Bird,” by Karen and Chris Weber, based on a verse in The Drawing of the Dark, by Tim Powers
