Eagle

Like a bomb you drop, spiralling down
Plummeting to the ground
Fearless, merciless you hunt
Eyes shine, radar like, glinting
Trousered legs down, claws poised
Drop, drop, bang, no more

Wings quickened, rising in warm air
Cliff, hard stone in sight
Life giving vole I thank you
Spirits unite as one

Into the air once more
