Eternal power of earth and air,
Unseen, yet seen in all around,
Remote, but dwelling everywhere,
Though silent, heard in every sound.

To Mistress Margaret Hussey

Merry Margaret,
As midsummer flower,
Gentle as falcon
Or hawk of the tower;
With solace and gladness,
Much mirth and no madness,
All good and no badness;
So joyously,
So maidenly,
So womanly
Her demeaning
In every thing,
Far, far passing
That I can endite,
Or suffice to write
Of merry Margaret,
As midsummer flower,
Gentle as falcon
Or hawk of the tower.
As patient and as still
And as full of good will
As fair Isaphill;
Colyander,
Sweet pomander,
Good Cassander;
Steadfast of thought,
Well made, well wrought,
Far may be sought
Ere that ye can find
So courteous, so kind
As merry Margaret,
This midsummer flower,
Gentle as falcon
Or hawk of the tower.

-- John Skelton

the hawk

'call down the hawk from the air;
let him be hooded or caged
till the yellow eye has grown mild,
for larder and spit are bare,
the old cook enraged,
the scullion gone wild.'

'i will not be clapped in a hood,
nor a cage, nor alight upon wrist,
now i have learnt to be proud
hovering over the wood
in the broken mist
or tumbling cloud.'

'what tumbling cloud did you cleave,
yellow-eyed hawk of the mind,
last evening? that i, who had sat
dumbfounded before a knave,
should give to my friend
a pretence of wit.'


william butler yeats, 1919

Rock and Hawk

Here is a symbol in which
Many high tragic thoughts
Watch their own eyes.

This gray rock, standing tall
On the headland, where the seawind
Lets no tree grow,

Earthquake-proved, and signatured
By ages of storms: on its peak
A falcon has perched.

I think, here is your emblem,
To hang in the future sky;
Not the cross, not the hive,

But this; bright power, dark peace;
Fierce consciousness joined with final
Disinterestedness;

Life with calm death; the falcon's
Realist eyes and act
Married to the massive

Mysticism of stone,
Which failure cannot cast down
Nor success make proud.

*~ Robinson Jeffers ~

I remember the first time I read this poem I felt a chill, the words are so perfect and direct.

are of advantage to me;
and the earth's face upward for my inspection.

my feet are locked upon the rough bark.
it took the whole of Creation
to produce my foot, my each feather:
now I hold Creation in my foot

or fly up, and revolve it all slowly -
i kill where I please because it is all mine.
there is no sophistry in my body:
my manners are tearing off heads -

the allotment of death.
for the one path of my flight is direct
through the bones of the living.
no arguments assert my right:

the sun is behind me.
nothing has changed since I began.
my eye has permitted no change.
i am going to keep things like this.

Like a tired bird flying high across the ocean
I was outside looking in
You made me live again
From the mountains to the prairies little babies
Figures fill their heads
Visions bathed in red

I don't know what day it is,
I can't recall the seasons
And I don't remember how we got this far
All I know is I'm loving you for all the right reasons
In my sky you'll always be my morning star

(the Jayhawks)
