An Eagle. Tall, straight, noble
a leader amongst men and boys
focused, the hawk-like profile turned
slightly upward and left, eyeing the sky.
An Eagle. Short and stouter, modest
of demeanor. Boy-man, man-boy
rising to some direction he knows not
yet shyly smiling and eyeing the sky.
May his path be straight, his eyes clear,
the steps of his character firm. May he
rise to find his true place in a world of
pseudo raptors, where a gentle heart
is not always honored.
May he help us all
to eye the sky.
