The Spotted Hawk Swoops By.
Transcript of The Spotted Hawk Swoops By.
"..he complains of my gab and my loitering."
"The last scuddy of day holds back for me. It flings my likeness after the rest as any on the shadow'd winds."
"You will hardly know who I am or what I mean but I shall be good health to you nevertheless." he is talking about even though you don't know who he is, he'll be able to help you.
The author has a confident tone because he claims him, (the prey) and the hawk, ( is the reader), are no different.
At first, the title makes the poem sound like a hawk is hunting its prey.
The theme of the poem is that even though the reader may not understand what the author is or even what he is saying at first, the author is always there, waiting for interpretation.

Our prediction was too literal. The title doesn't mean exactly what the poem is about. The hawk is the reader, and the prey is the author.
The poem in summary is about a hawk, (the reader), not being able to comprehend the author, and somewhat being annoyed by it, but in the end when the author says, "Failure to catch me at first keep encouraged," he encourages the reader to understand him/her.
"I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable."
