The Eagle


Strong and proud you fill the skies

Soaring above us so very high

Looking out for us every day

We still mourn when you went away


But there you fly keeping us safe

You live on forever and we just wait

For the day when we will join you there

Flying together with no more care


Your beauty and majesty gives honour to

The Rainbow Serpent who created you

Your gentle spirit shines through your eyes

And passes to us down from the skies
