Page 42 - THE hawk slipped out of the pine, and rose in the sunlit air: Steady and still he poised; his shadow slept on the grass: And the bird's song sickened and sank: she cowered with furtive stare, Dumb, till the quivering dimness should flicker and shift and pass. Suddenly down he dropped: she heard the hiss of his wing, Fled with a scream of terror: oh, would she had dared to rest! For the hawk at eve was full, and there was no bird to sing, And over the heather drifted the down from a bleeding breast.
