In Memoriam: Four Poets

Written by: Robert Francis | Biography
 1

Searock his tower above the sea,
Searock he built, not ivory.
Searock as well his haunted art Who gave to plunging hawks his hearts.
2 He loved to stand upon his head To demonstrate he was not dead.
Ah, if his poems misbehave 'Tis only to defy the grave.
3 This exquisite patrician bird Grooming a neatly folded wing Guarded for years the Sacred Word.
A while he sang then ceased to sing.
4 His head carved out of granite O, His hair a wayward drift of snow, He worshipped the great God of Flow By holding on and letting go.
