The Eagle

My soul has risen To where the eagle flys Also with the vision Of the eagles eyes My voice has now turned To an eagles cry With its wings of strength To sail the mountins high I sail upon the breeze Just beneath the clouds It's here that I Am the only one allowed I watch over all the earth And the creations of man Keeping an eye on those below Is all just part of Gods plan If you dare to entice me That would surely not be wise For the feeble few that do Are the foolish ones that die So I sit upon the tallest tree And watch you from afar To see if I'm correct On the foolish ones there are

    So here I sat rambling on and on like a bumbling idiot...HOW ABOUT THIS POEM!!!! PLacing your spirit inside the eagles and experiencing all the keen senses that an eagle senses is a swell idea for a poem...Nice club for you eagles up there in the clouds too...enjoyed much! gwendolen

    Fascinated with eagles...my professor last year always had a live cam of an eagle's nest on the big screen projector and we were able to pause and reflect on God's greatest beast of the air...sometimes the father eagle would swoop down and drop a rat into the center of the nest and fly away...have u seen this? Just curious...Did me calling you Danny Boy take off like wild fire or was the name already glued to ya!? I am giggling at these funny remarks below....gwendolen

    Ok to call you Dannyboy, then, is it? Well, John Boy says he'll be looking over his shoulder and steering clear of talons set to shred the foolishness of the sleepy ones :-) Nice soaring, dude.

    Well, Dannyboy, since we are merely foolish, sinning men, do the Eagle proud and enter the Dojo using Praying Eagle Wing-attack, Kung-Fu style.
