Golden Eagle


The golden eagle, what a sight!
Across the pond, they know!
A wondrous creature when in flight,
Its silhouette aglow!
Just like an arrow cross the sky,
Angelic-like above,
The kind of bird Man questions why
This life seems not enough...

Yet viewed up close, designs are known,
Each eye that sees so far,
Each feather there so that he's flown
As if from Earth to star!
With claws to help him land as well,
The mountain face to grip,
So that he's like a miracle
That's never meant to slip...

The golden eagle still inspires,
He's known the whole world wide,
A brilliant bird that one admires,
Regarding each with pride...
Prospectors understand gold's worth,
Romantics comprehend,
Like eagles that have blessed this Earth,
Let's soar like eagles, friend!

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
