    I tell you solemnly
    That I was sorry to have disappointed him. To be eaten by that beak and become part of him, to share those wings and those eyes—
    What a sublime end of one’s body, what an enskyment; what a life
    after death.
    Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)

    O passionately at peace when will that tide draw shoreward,
    —Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)

    He packed a lot of things that she had made
    Most mournfully away in an old chest
    Of hers, and put some chopped-up cedar boughs
    In with them, and tore down the slaughterhouse.
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)
