THE BIRDCATCHER, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: When flighting time is on, I go
Last Line: They fly into my head.
Subject(s): Birds

When flighting time is on, I go
With clap-net and decoy,
A-fowling after goldfinches
And other birds of joy;

I lurk among the thickets of
The Heart where they are bred,
And catch the twittering beauties as
They fly into my Head.
