A royal golden eagle sprite, I think I'm rather like that kite, I soar when in free rein; Free as a bird, in joyful flight, Heedless of all constrain. Yes precious string held fast in his hand. such words give power and imagination and at the end a very positive note to desire for guidance. thank you very much dear Poetess. tony
