Inspiration from the Eagle
By Kathleen Reeder
Soaring majestically with grace,
With commanding courage and strength,
Carrying our prayers and dreams on its wings,
On the bridge between heaven and earth.
The chief over all winged creatures,
Alert with keen sight and no fear,
Our symbol for personal freedom,
To choose when to fight or to take flight.
Spread your wings… soar as the eagle,
Expand your view… stretch your limits,
Ride the storm’s fierce wind waves and be brave,
You have purpose… go explore and grow.
But… remain grounded to the earth,
Be honest and own your actions,
Conserve energy and be patient,
Maintain life’s harmony and balance.
