I am puff-breasted , proud-crested, Swollen-necked. I strut on one foot. I sport a fine head, high tail, Eyes, ears, back, beak, two sides. I ride a stiff nail, my perch above men. I twist in torment when the forest-shaker Whips and shoves; where I stand the storm Wind-waters roll, hail stones, Sleet shrouds, frost slips freezing, Snow drifts down. One-foot, hole-belly, I mark the seasons with a twist of fate, I cannot change. My stake is grim.
