Eagles Are To Be Or Not To Be


Eagles commit suicide, but Not out of despair or out of A failed love, but This is the way they end, They are the pretty occupants of The high skies where They prevail until They die their way, They beget new eagles To be or not to be, They're hovering endlessly up In the skies to be there And watch from tops only, so They are always pretty eagles, They never give up, even by some way, hit or beaten, Their names are brands, so They stay eagles even after they commit suicide because they were born strong and bold.

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
