  • A raven. --Dr. Jamieson's Scottish Dictionary and Supplement, 1841.

  • I will go with my Father a-ploughing
    To the Green Field by the sea,
    And the rooks and corbies and seagulls
    Will come flocking after me.
    I will sing to the patient horses
    With the lark in the shine of the air,
    And my Father will sing the Plough-Song
    That blesses the cleaving share.

    - Joseph Campbell, 'I Will Go With My Father A-Ploughing'.
