The Eagle

The Eagle

A Chapter by Dave Brown
"

yes

"

As night yields to new day             

A shadow crosses neath sun

On the wide wings of a majestic

The fate of prey has begun

 

Eagle eyes guide his flight

As he drinks freedom’s breath

Where life yawn’s unaware 

He brings certain death

 

For it is death gives him life

The squirrel climbing a tree

The rabbit in the undergrowth

These let him live free

 

Morning’s duck on the foreshore

Unguarded chicks in a nest

A mouse in a meadow

All these he will test

 

From the tallest of old growth

Or the craggiest cliff’s height

To survey all beneath

Is the great Eagle’s birthright
