The Eagle

Rating: 3.4
He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.
The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

It was so nice to find and to read this poem today. It was the first poem I memorized and recited in the second grade. Now, Fifty years later, it is so rich...clasps the crag with crooked hands... Tennyson's timeless beauty. Thank you for sharing this.

I remembered this favourite poem as I drove the high road home and looked down at the wrinkled sea which really did appear to be crawling. So few words needed to create a magical moment.

Why can't they be bothered to ACTUALLY say something themselves in the video rather than a robot voice?
