Arms and the Boy

Arms and the Boy

Let the boy try along this bayonet-blade How cold steel is, and keen with hunger of blood; Blue with all malice1, like a madman's flash; And thinly drawn2 with famishing for flesh.

Lend him to stroke these blind, blunt bullet-heads Which long to muzzle3 in the hearts of lads. Or give him cartridges4 of fine zinc5 teeth, Sharp with the sharpness of grief and death.

For his teeth seem for laughing round an apple. There lurk6 no claws behind his fingers supple7; And God will grow no talons8 at his heels, Nor antlers through the thickness of his curls.
