High Talk Analysis

Author: poem of William Butler Yeats Type: poem Views: 23

Processions that lack high stilts have nothing that

        catches the eye.

What if my great-granddad had a pair that were

        twenty foot high,

And mine were but fifteen foot, no modern Stalks

        upon higher,

Some rogue of the world stole them to patch up a fence

        or a fire.


Because piebald ponies, led bears, caged lions, ake

        but poor shows,

Because children demand Daddy-long-legs upon This

        timber toes,

Because women in the upper storeys demand a face at

        the pane,

That patching old heels they may shriek, I take to

        chisel and plane.

Malachi Stilt-Jack am I, whatever I learned has run wild,

From collar to collar, from stilt to stilt, from father to child.

All metaphor, Malachi, stilts and all.  A barnacle goose

Far up in the stretches of night; night splits and the

        dawn breaks loose;

I, through the terrible novelty of light, stalk on, stalk on;

Those great sea-horses bare their teeth and laugh at the dawn.
