ASH WEDNESDAY
ASH WEDNESDAY
(Why should the aged eagle stretch
            its wings?)




Why should I mourn
The vanished power of the
usual reign?
Because I do not hope to know again
The infirm glory of the positive hour
Because I do not think
Because I know I shall not know
The one veritable transitory power
Because I cannot drink
There, where trees flower, and springs flow, for there is
    nothing again
ASH WEDNESDAY
ASH WEDNESDAY
And pray to God to have mercy upon us
And I pray that I may forget
These matters that with myself I too much discuss
Too much explain
Because I do not hope to turn again
Let these word answer
For what is done
Not to be done again


May the judgement not be too heavy upon us
Because these wings are no longer wings to fly
But merely vans to beat the air
The air which is now thoroughly small and dry
Smaller and dryer than the will
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still

Even among these rocks
And even among these rocks
Sister, mother,
Spirit of the river, spirit of the
               sea
Suffer me not to be separated
And let my cry
Come unto thee
