from The Borough

High o'er the restless Deep, above the reach
Of Gunner's hope, vast flocks of wild-duck stretch;
Far as the eye can glance on either side,
In a broad space and level line they glide;
All in their wedge-like figures from the north
Day after day, flight after flight, go forth.

About the author:

George Crabbe (1754-1832) was an English poet, surgeon, and clergyman. He is best known for his early use of the realistic narrative form and his descriptions of working and middle-class lives. Crabbe's poetry was predominantly in the form of heroic couplets, and has been described as unsentimental in its depiction of provincial life and society.
