Hunter

I fly up so high
floating in the sky
watching below for my prey
If they knew they'd fear
for them death is near
This is part of natures way

I make my attack
hit the water smack
With my talons grab on tight
The pike in my grip
it will never slip
It is trapped within my might



Trying a form Dr. Ram's explained called an "Alouette"

    way to be inspired by someone's poetry form. I think I heard of this form before too. Nicely done, Richard.
