sea +‎ mew

NounEdit

seamew (plural seamews)

  1. The common gull.
    • 1849, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, In Memoriam A.H.H., canto CXV:
      Now dance the lights on lawn and lea,
      The flocks are whiter down the vale,
      And milkier every milky sail
      On winding stream or distant sea;
      Where now the seamew pipes, or dives
      In yonder greening gleam, and fly
      The happy birds, that change their sky
      To build and brood
