With Spirit and Strength
Powers beyond measure wearing messages of the spirit,
BALD EAGLE soars with might, so majestic I can hear it.
bestowing freedom flying higher than any other bird,
and under ivory stars his squall can be heard.
Symbolizing courage with intense eyes for prey,
the strength of the BALD EAGLE is always on display.
The distance of mother nature provides such nobility
and has brought faith to humanity and given dignity.
Powerful and robust is the BALD EAGLE in flight,
a predator during the day and on watch at night.
Native Americans see them as a leader for vision,
without restraints or stipulated provision.
Spirit totem waving fortitude to all who can hear,
and all animals that lay eyes on him show fear.
His tenacity and endurance are countless and dignified,
as food for his fledglings he strives to provide.
He is proud to be the American national emblem,
with those silky-smooth feathers; flying with momentum.
Pueblo Indians associated them with energy of the sun,
holding great perception until the dawn of day is done.
The bald eagle is predatory and carnivorous,
from elk to ravens his diet is so tremendous.
He sheds light down to show vigor exists
because eating flesh and fish is what he persists.
I chose the bald eagle not just for his splendor,
for he’s a spiritual bird and an offspring defender.
He’s a national freedom beautiful representation,
and should never be held in cruel captivation.
