Let the Eagles Soar

Let the eagles soar above the hills Displaying remarkable flying skills, Symbols of our nation’s strength And intrepid patriotic feeling instills Our anthem, the Star-Spangled Banner, The heart of an impassioned patriot fills, When hearing about our spacious skies Our hearts do tremble with gusty thrills, And give us deep satisfaction to cheer While dancing those old-fashioned rills, They crawl up our arms in tiny bumps Cause us to shudder with the chills. Let the eagles soar above the hills Displaying remarkable flying skills, The grasslands, deserts, and seashore From majestic mountains to tiny rills, To live in a land of freedom and might Covers up many of our frustrating ills With thanksgiving each day for bounty Our hearts with gratitude over spills, Let the eagles soar above the hills Displaying remarkable flying skills. written October 14, 2021

Lifts my heart to read 'Let the eagles soar.' (I still tear up at a stirring rendition of the National Anthem -- as in NOT by Beyonce and her ilk). Thanks, Milt!

Oh, please, NO! I'm still the guy who takes off my hat, puts my hand over my hart, and sings along. I just hate to hear our National Anthem botched by people who can't carry the tune and take liberties with the words, etc., etc....gets my dander up!
