An old form – 24 lines - three 8 line stanzas - 34 words each - ‘On wings of the Eagle’

Why should I fall trodden
In deserts of sorrow
Or walk in the shadows
Of tenebrous lies
Lest ere should I wait
For sweet sudden showers
To moisten the wings
Of the Eagles reply

For long would I ponder
Where oft life had whispered
With springs sweet sufficing
Or summers fond brooding
In autumns capitulations
To winters long slumbers
There would I travel
On wings of the Eagle

Why long should I linger
In moment’s swift passing
When laughter’s brief banquet
Would lessen life’s burdens
On parchment with pens
In memories sweet stains
There would I sojourn
On wings of the Eagle

A longing, lingering memory of how short life is and the thought that we should have the vision of the eagle in our hindsight. You are really in the spirit with this one.

Feels like a moving away from turbulence. Strength is now in reserve, perhaps, for the eagle to venture forth. Love the first verse especially, Richard. Love and hugs,

Life is but a vapour, isn't it? How important it is, therefore, to love one another, do good, think pure thoughts, keep God's Commandments, and so leave a positive legacy. Thank you, Richard. Another excellent write.

Reviewed by D Johnson 5/18/2011
Richard, this is a great form of writing, reminding me of the style of some of the old church hymns from a long time ago. Excellent write!

Wrought with panache;
read aloud, as it ought to be,
this work glows and flows, a stream
elegant and haunting.
Kudos, Richard!

It's good to see you posting again,
i missed your great pen.

A lilting lovely poem, Chum,and the Eagle is a favorite of mine. I painted a similar oil,facing the other way, a bit larger,and sold it in one of my first "Poor Artist" paintings;-) It was $125.00 of the sweetest dollars I ever earned!It was many years ago,but I should have stayed with my painting,I might have improved,and continued with it...

You give new life to the old form, Richard.
I love the rhythm of it. -gene.
