What It Means to Watch an Eagle in Flight

By Lawrence Rahn, Army

Writing Type: Poem

By Lawrence E. Rahn
VA Medical Center--Minneapolis, MN

Look there, high in the sky, 

above that highest peak one can see!

Gracefully it glides through the air, 

soaring freely on its own eagle's wings,

proud of the power for which it stands.

The eagle doesn't realize
how much American people are inspired
to see such a flight,
a magnificent bird such as this,
soaring silently in flight throughout the skies.

Yes, to most of the world,
it's just feathers able to fly.
But to Americans, it's much more
than just a bird,
it's a symbol of freedom
for those who fought proudly for their country,
the United States of America.
This magnificent bird you see in flight
will always stand for freedom
which is why it's so important to Americans.

Yes, the Bald Eagle carries itself proudly,
silently in the air.  Gracefully it glides
above the people of America below,
watching this icon in flight,
watching it soar so high.
