Eagle soaring above Alaskan river

Eagle soaring above Alaskan river

O eagle on the lifting breeze,
That swift updrafting thermal seize;
And soar and play and ride and glide
Then on a tilting downdraft slide.

So light, so free of care, you see;
I’m held down here by gravity.
If I could rise and soar like thee,
I’d be so happy - I’d be free.

Eternal Security
