Proud & Strong!

    Newer Older

    Have you ever wondered what it's like to fly free,
    To see the world as far as the eye can see,
    To view the surroundings from high and from low,
    To hear only the sound of a distant echo,
    To float in the air with the wind being your guide,
    To admire many rainbows that the trees tend to hide,
    To see the misty mornings over a beautiful mountaintop,
    To glide over a flowing river that never seems to stop,
    To watch the animals from over a mile away,
    Or to rise above the treetops that glisten in the day?
    If you were an eagle you would wonder no more,
    For it can see things you have never seen before.
    Next time you look into the sky of blue,
    Think of what it's like from an eagle's view.

    To You
    From Me!

    *Special Note to let you know the background is the netting that surronds the eagle at the Fort Worth zoo. I did not do that. Wish I knew how to! That is all the netting and sunlight!
