The Eagle

looked into the morning

   blue sky

eagle soaring

reaching high

little boy

with wonder in

   his eye

“I will join you

       I will try”

young man hunting

in the afternoon sun

saw an eagle

high in a tree

ruling over all

he could see

“great hunter

of ground and sky

guide my way

give me eyes”

old man died

wise before sunset

and the hunter

flew by

tilting his wings

as he flew

into the sun

reigning from on high

december 24 1991
