Flying Penguin Drawings from Dumont d’Urville

I found this funny image on a site about research in the Antarctic.

As from the earth the light Balloon
Asks nothing but release —
Ascension that for which it was,
Its soaring Residence.
The spirit looks upon the Dust
That fastened it so long
With indignation,
As a Bird
Defrauded of its song.
