Eagle Soaring

Soaring Eagle

The Eagle

Eagle soaring
Instincts warning
Eagle sight
Staring bright
Movement spied
There descried!
Diving, diving
Joy deriving
Now the kill.
Stomach fill.
Up and fly
Seek the sky
Instincts warning
Eagle soaring.

The Man

How I sense from on the ground
Keenly every sight and sound.
Keenly spying everywhere
Sailing through the wholesome air.
Here’s our prey to hunt, to seek.
Flying, hunting down the weak!
Swooping down with hurtling speed
Diving, swooping for a feed.
Wholesome meat – and marrow bone
Luscious taste for which it’s known.
Feel the calling of the wind
Talons from the ground rescind.
Feeling sun and wind and sky
God gave birds the gift to fly.

The Twain

Eagle soaring – how I sense from on the ground
Instincts warning – keenly every sight and sound.
Eagle sight – keenly spying everywhere
Staring bright – sailing through the wholesome air.
Movement spied – here’s our prey to hunt, to seek.
There descried! – Flying, hunting down the weak!
Diving, diving – swooping down with hurtling speed
Joy deriving – diving, swooping for a feed.
Now the kill. Wholesome meat – and marrow bone
Stomach fill. Luscious taste for which it’s known.
Up and fly – feel the calling of the wind
Seek the sky – Talons from the ground rescind.
Instincts warning – Feeling sun and wind and sky
Eagle soaring. God gave birds the gift to fly.
