Description The Quail And The Man ( A poem by Charles Andres Alberto)There, that- through the river-He, whose face perturbed, despaired a splendor-upon the quiet quail surrendered-whose feathers flocked the fall of summer, utters: 'Enlightened beastie of the air, who flutters freely, evoking glare-that sits upon the cedar's hair-let us render the earth unkemptand let us tidy up her ornaments, let us pluck and plunder the suns aground, who sit upon the tavern mound-And cast their smiles to the sky-For if not, they shall linger longer till they die.'In turn the quail quivered-He that sits upon that fence-Man of malevolence, boar of chance! Whose existence lingers till the morrow, Pig of guilt and pig of sorrow! Whose distended desires that you follow-Such assay you give to them! Let you be as He you mend!
