FROM EAGLE ROCK, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Who says that eagle rock was not well named
Last Line: Luminous, hushed, a city of the skies!
Subject(s): Mountains; Hills; Downs (great Britain)

Who says that Eagle Rock was not well named
Has never thither climbed, nor, raptured, strayed
Along its floor, by jutting rock upstayed!
An eagle-spirit bides there, all untamed
As in those days when none fee-simple claimed,
But flowing forests its dark sides arrayed.
Still giant trees make there a colonnade
And gothic windows, where great skies are framed.

Go, on a summer afternoon, and gaze --
Far eastward, on one glamorous view of all,
Where, like a dream of lost and golden days,
Or like mirage of shimmering tower and wall,
New York across grey waters pictured lies --
Luminous, hushed, a city of the skies!
