Sophia White

('90 / America)

As an Eagle

I was down
I was weary
I was running
About to faint
But You
You were there
You heard my prayer
And raised me up!

On wings
As an Eagle
Flying for You
You alone!

I was failing
I was worn
I was falling
About to drop
But you
You were there
You heard my prayer
And raised me up!

On wings
As an Eagle
Flying for You
You alone.

    Your phrasing and repetition makes for a wonderful reading. Fits nicely with the symbolism of an eagle. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
