Pursuit #8




dead not dead
    were flitting about me
day was not
    bats were flitting about me
day was while bats were flitting about me
    sang while bats were flitting
blackbirds sang while bats and blackbirds sang
    while robins and blackbirds sang
fleeces,  robins and blackbirds
    golden fleeces,  robins and of golden fleeces
robins, flocks of golden fleeces
    like flocks of golden –
were like flocks of bushes
    were like flocks
the compact gorse bushes
    were like the slopes
the compact gorse bushes were of the slopes
    the compact gorse bushes
some of the slopes
    the compact gorse
on some of the slopes
    and still on some of departing
and still on some slowly departing
    and still on was slowly departing
and still the light was slowly departing
    hillsides, the light was slowly
steep hillsides
    the light was and steep hillsides
the light, trees and steep hillsides of trees
    and steep, the shadows of trees
and in the shadows of trees I floated
    in the shadows of I floated
in the shadows I floated in I floated

Pursuit #7




 I had England I had
    must have reached all over England
which must have reached all over songs
    which must have reached all of larks’ songs
which must have a chain of larks’ songs
    which oaks by a chain of larks’ songs
in the roadside oaks by a chain of larks
    missel-thrushes in the roadside oaks
by a chain away by missel-thrushes
    in the roadside oaks by
sung away by missel-thrushes
    in the roadside was sung away by missel-thrushes
I hoped was sung away by as I hoped
    was sung rain as I hoped
was the rain as I hoped
    of the rain as end of the rain
the end of the grass
    the end of drenched grass
the end the drenched grass
    the arches of the drenched grass
the arches of the drenched
    in the arches of the white
in the arches of very white
    in the stitchwort very white
in the stitchwort very white and the stitchwort very, very green
    and the stitchwort leaves very green
and the leaves very green
    and leaves, very green leaves
