The eagles' eyes are so alive;
Their soaring so assured.
It is no wonder men of old
Adopted this great bird
To symbolize how we can feel
When our activity
Is only that which can take us
Toward what we can be.
We should look up and contemplate
The message that it brings.
When freed, our spirit too can soar
As if on eagle's wings.

Had we the vision eagles have
When soaring on their wings,
Forever we would be released
From all those worldly things
That are attempts to fill "the void"
Found under "the last why."
Instead, we would "reach out..." and be;
And with the eagles fly.
