And the Strong Eagle now with numming cold blighted of feathers
Once like the pride of the sun now flagging on cold night
Hovers with blasted wings aloft watching with Eager Eye
Till Man shall leave a corruptible body he famishd hears him groan
And now he fixes his strong talons in the pointed rock
And now he beats the heavy air with his enormous wings

William Blake; Vala; Night the Eighth; 55R [l.35] (1804?).
Ed H.M.Margoliouth, OUP 1956
