20. The Peacock

II


WHAT’S riches to him 
That has made a great peacock 
With the pride of his eye? 
The wind-beaten, stone-grey, 
And desolate Three-rock         5
Would nourish his whim. 
Live he or die 
Amid wet rocks and heather, 
His ghost will be gay 
Adding feather to feather  10
For the pride of his eye.
