The King

eagle by jamie king
Picture Taken By: Jamie King

Its spirit is high above any other.

A bird of prey, a warrior of air

Fowl below is simply pauper.

This bird is king.

A life on the run,

Nest here, tomorrow up-river:

You could never catch it

This bird is king.

It flies in dignity,

Untouched by man,

Unmeasured by game:

This bird is king.
