    headland beyond stormy headland plunging like dolphins through the
    gray sea-smoke
    Into pale sea, look west at the hill of water: it is half the
    planet: this dome, this half-globe, this bulging
    Eyeball of water,
    Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)

    I gave him the lead gift in the twilight. What fell was relaxed,
    Owl-downy, soft feminine feathers; but what
    Soared: the fierce rush: the night-herons by the flooded river cried
    fear at its rising
    Before it was quite unsheathed from reality.
    —Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)

    He may have seen with his mechanic eyes
    A world without a meaning, and had room,
    Alone amid magnificence and doom,
    To build himself an airy monument
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)
