  1. Hanging with the vultures here isn’t all that bad:

    On those great sails; how beautiful he looked, veering away in the sea-light over the precipice. I tell you solemnlyThat 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.

  2. Ginny, I liked Mr. Jeffers poem.

    I wonder what course it would have taken had he been taking a little siesta!

  3. Tyouth,

    Thanks. I used to refer to them as buzzards (e.g., here) but it seems that not many people use that term online, so I decided to go with the flow. Plus, it is my understanding that in European usage “buzzard” refers to an entirely different type of bird, so why confuse things. It is a no-win situation.
