How to use gyre in a sentence?

  1. W. B. Yeats, the second coming:

    Turning and turning in the widening gyre, The falcone cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world...

  2. Phil Klotzbach:

Let's hope we don't have another October-November like we had last year, but I think the large scale should favor another active end to the season.

  3. Oceanographer Autun Purser:
