1935"I hate my verses, every line, every word.

Oh pale and brittle pencils ever to try

One grass-blade's curve, or the throat of one bird

That clings to twig, ruffled against white sky.

Oh cracked and twilight mirrors ever to catch

One color, one glinting

Hash, of the splendor of things.

Unlucky hunter, Oh bullets of wax,

The lion beauty, the wild-swan wings, the storm of the wings."

--This wild swan of a world is no hunter's game.

Better bullets than yours would miss the white breast

Better mirrors than yours would crack in the flame.

Does it matter whether you hate your . . . self?

At least Love your eyes that can see, your mind that can

Hear the music, the thunder of the wings. Love the wild swan.

.: :.

This poem is about the details in life that an artist cannot capture. The poet, Mr. Jeffers, is admitting defeat. He is surrendering to the fact that no matter how elegant his diction, it amounts to nothing when compared to the subject of his poetry. He uses blades of grass and the idea of feathers because of the constant movement and the minute details which create the beauty that he is so passionate about. In the end the poet resolves whatever conflict he had with himself over his shortcomings by showing his gratitude for the ability to sense such beauty.
