The text that follows is that which is integral to Peter Warlock's song-cycle "The Curlew".
Deeply moving and at times.....bleak.

HE REPROVES THE CURLEW


by William Butler Yeats

O Curlew, cry no more in the air,
Or only to the water in the West;
Because your crying brings to my mind
passion-dimmed eyes and long heavy hair
That was shaken out over my breast:
There is enough evil in the crying of wind.
