- there isn't a breath of air
- There is not a breath of air .
- Only there was no wind .
- Fine flat sand , never a catspaw , trees all around of it , and flowers a - blowing like a garding on that old ship
- We had a dreary morning s work before us , for there was no sign of any wind , and the boats had to be got out and manned , and the ship warped three or four miles round the corner of the island , and up the narrow passage to the haven behind skeleton island
