Another Ted Hughes'. The poem is quite abstract, so my readings of it are abstract. Another emblem on the circle of life; I tried to describe this with the four seasons. The birds (as this is the main subject matter of the collection of work) are mating, the male is quite aggressively procreating with the female. This was to mirror the slight chauvinism in the poem. The finished result is busy, almost overwhelming. Like an intricate pattern for a carpet.
