This Nest, Swift Passerine [excerpt]
But how find how as it flew onward & the mountains gave back the sound to say what I mean the call of the bird & the echoe after to say I've seen? Raven hungers and calls and the mountain Hungers back and calls The whole range of peaks in the bird's beak. Raven lonely and the mountain rings Loneliness & the echoe after we could see him no longer The echo after we could see Light in echo the eye sees also through the ear a double infinity
