I have known this poem for over 40 years and it never ceases to stir me. I
imagine myself in Jeffers' shoes, twisted inside with agony over this
injured creature who cannot heal himself but who refuses to surrender to a
weak and begging dependency for his continued existence. He choses instead
to ask boldly, to choose proudly, full of his earned arrogance, for his
rightful due in death. And Jeffers, responsibly, delivers.

Pair this one with Jeffers' "The Beaks of Eagles"
in a plea for reverence for life, especially for the predatory birds of the
air. These two poems have truly pierced my soul. Only once in my 75
years, at age 13, did I take aim with an air rifle and dropped a sparrow
from his telephone perch on the first shot. I have never shot at anything

I love this poem. It's beautiful and sad, and a very good read, I feel.
