Where Eagles Fly


Below, a never ending canopy of green
Filling the vastnesses of two horizons
An ethereal preserve where intrepid eagles soar
Aboard warm winds circling in gallant glides

Oh to be with eagles in exuberant flight
Testing the heights then daring a measured fall
Screaming and zooming above the earthbound green
Rapturous moments in a royal raptor's convocation

I'm envious of their fiefdom, their realm in the sky
Just like a sparrow beating with puny and frazzled wings
How futile to keep in flight with a jubilation of eagles
But oh, the grandness of the thought to be where eagles fly

    Wow! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Excellent poetry in majestic flight and 'Rapturous moments in a royal raptor's convocation'. But the little sparrow has its sweetness in her shrill voice, why be envious?

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
