The Hunter
By Glenway Wescott
From “Still-hunt”

YOU asked me what I did
In peaked New Mexico,
Where lives the most wild beauty
To which a man may go.
And I answer that I pursued        5
Content that would go in a song
Upon its silvery mountains
So vainly and so long
That if it were bear or lion
Which I had hunted there        10
I should now be like Orion,
Fixed hungry in the air.
