The Way of the Eagle

Published by

Have you ever seen an eagle,

Attacked by birds of prey—

With wings all hurt and bleeding

Trying in the air to stay?


Its victory’s not in battling,

For then can foes do harm—

Instead it flies still higher

Where other birds disarm.


Yes, eagles soar and spiral

Where other birds cannot—

When peril would assail them

More altitude is sought!
