Beyond the Edge of the World

And take from the hawk his flying wisdom, soar

On the keen edge of the world's wind, veer and hover

Until you take the very stars for eyes

And see below you, moving on the land

Like a gopher homeless in a new-plowed field,

The living object of your flight, the running

Spirit of the country

 

From Proem to American Song by Paul Engle (1908 - 1991)
