I thought long and hard about eagles…


I thought long and hard about eagles,
And I came to understand a lot:
Eagles fly among the clouds,
They fly without bothering anyone.
I came to understand that eagles live on cliffs and on mountains,
And that they’re friends with the water spirits.
I thought long and hard about eagles,
But it seems that I confused them with flies.
