THE TOUCH OF A WING

 

Great golden and bald eagles

Soar and dip and glide

I envy them such freedom

To travel far and wide

 

I think it must exhilarate

When on a downward swing

To caress the mighty treetops

With the touch of a wing

 

Then go soaring to the glory

Of cerulean sky

To catch the thermal up-drafts

As scenes go passing by

 

How great to view the landscape

Away from all the crowds

Where all that’s seen is beauty

Down beneath the clouds

 

Oh, I’d love to soar like they do

And glide with wings spread wide

Surveying beauty spread below

In our great countryside
