The Eagle

by Alfred Tennyson

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ringed with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

 A tiger's eye eagle can be found here.

Real eagles can be found far from the tiger's eye eagles.

  1. What a pretty piece and I love Tennyson. Being from Hawaii, I have yet to see a live eagle (other than on tv). That will have to be one of my goals on my next trip!
