One day he happened to see a Swallow, which had appeared before its season, skimming
along a pool and twittering gaily.
Milking was done betimes; and before the milking came the skimming
, which began at a little past three.
In reality, she was a true balancelle, with two short masts raking forward and two curved yards, each as long as her hull; a true child of the Latin lake, with a spread of two enormous sails resembling the pointed wings on a sea-bird's slender body, and herself, like a bird indeed, skimming
