Grace of the Eagle

By David De Jong
February 16, 2013

Encountered a bald eagle today
Skimming the trees while showing the way
Hope filled wings stretching across the sky
Rings of gold reflected from each eye

Whispering wings hovered overhead
Perfections of heaven my heart fed
So confident so sure his flight
His vantage proving pure delight

His gaze to distant time and place
Each aileron turn measured with grace
A simple creature yet wondrously grand
For what it represents across our land

Watched by this spirit in the sky
Constant under His watchful eye
His might his flight forever be free
Our flag kept unfurled in liberty
