The Hawk

Written by: William Henry Davies | Biography
 | Quotes (2) |
 Thou dost not fly, thou art not perched, 
The air is all around: 
What is it that can keep thee set, 
From falling to the ground? 
The concentration of thy mind 
Supports thee in the air; 
As thou dost watch the small young birgs, 
With such a deadly care. 

My mind has such a hawk as thou, 
It is an evil mood; 
It comes when there's no cause for grief, 
And on my joys doth brood. 
Then do I see my life in parts; 
The earth receives my bones, 
The common air absorbs my mind--- 
It knows not flowers from stones.
