Spotted Hawk Swoops By Analysis
Transcript of Spotted Hawk Swoops By Analysis
he complains of my bag and my loitering.
I too am not a bit tamed, I too am
I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of
The last scud of day holds back for me,
It flings my likeness after the rest and true
as any on the shadow'd wilds,
It coaxes me to the vapor and the dusk.
I depart as air, I shake my white locks at
the runaway sun,
I effuse my flesh in eddies, and drift it in
I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from
the grass I love,
If you want me again look for me under
You will hardly know who I am or what I mean,
But I shall be good health to you nevertheless,
And filter and fibre your blood.
Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged,
Missing me one place search another,
I stop somewhere waiting for you. Spotted Hawk Swoops By Subject of The Poem Form of the Poem Tone of the Poem The tone of the poem is positive and free.
