 Poetry From The Heart by Barbara Ann Smith

A Daydream

I have a longing to soar like an eagle,
over mountains, dipping into valleys,
crossing over clear lakes,
viewing this impressive planet with keen eyes.
Sit perching in a huge nest,
caring for my young,
delighting in their movements and readiness,
as they wait to fly away with me.

Glide and plunge amongst the clouds,
watch animals creep across grassy meadows,
seek out fish in lakes and ponds,
catch an animal for a meal,
flap dynamic wings, showing a robust chest,
display piercing eyes and a razor sharp beak,
feathers emitting iridescent hues,
my proud head turning back and forth,
being the eye and the ruler of the earth,

Yes, I'd like to soar...just once,
like a prodigious eagle on a mission,
keeping watch over our Mother Country,
exhibiting a gracefulness to the world.
