WINDHOVER 



1968 





THE WINDHOVER: 

To Christ Our Lord 

I caught this morning morning's minion, king- 
dom of daylight's dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, 

in his riding 
Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and 
striding 
High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling 

wing 
In his ecstacy ! then off, off forth on swing, 

As a skate's heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend : the 

hurl and gliding 
Rebuffed the big wind. My heart in hiding 
Stirred for a bird, — the achieve of, the mastery of the 

thing! 
Brute beauty and valor and act, oh, air, pride, 
plume, here 
Buckle! AND the fire that breaks from thee then, a 
billion 
Times told lovelier, more dangerous, O my chevalier! 

No wonder of it : sheer plod makes plow down sillion 
Shine, and blue-bleak embers, ah my dear. 

Fall, gall themselves, and gash gold-vermilion. 

Gerard Manley Hopkins
