Gannets Analysis



Author: poem of Mary Oliver Type: poem Views: 9

Sponsored Links

  

I am watching the white gannets

blaze down into the water

with the power of blunt spears

and a stunning accuracy--

even though the sea is riled and boiling

and gray with fog

and the fish

are nowhere to be seen,

they fall, they explode into the water

like white gloves,

then they vanish,

then they climb out again,

from the cliff of the wave,

like white flowers--

and still I think

that nothing in this world moves

but as a positive power--

even the fish, finning down into the current

or collapsing

in the red purse of the beak,

are only interrupted from their own pursuit

of whatever it is

that fills their bellies--

and I say:

life is real,

and pain is real,

but death is an imposter,

and if I could be what once I was,

like the wolf or the bear

standing on the cold shore,

I would still see it--

how the fish simply escape, this time,

or how they slide down into a black fire

for a moment,

then rise from the water inseparable

from the gannets' wings.
