The Bald Eagle
The bald eagle soars through the crisp air,
Ever increasing his ascent towards the clouds;
His majestic climb inspires the fisherman
Dreaming, gazing, into the sky.
This American icon has proved a strong
Survivor, sitting atop the food chain
He waits for his prey and attacks:
Diving through the air snatching a fish
With his knife talons and keratin beak.
Satisfied, at last, he glides across
The cloudless sky, into the sunset.
