The eagle

Stretch out your wings, my bird;
A wonderland of lift and drag
Bald headed eagle taken by Beren Hartless
Awaits you.
Exercise your muscles and
Prepare to fly,
To risk.

Who knows?  The growth of courage
And the full-fledged wing
May be together.

You have nowhere else to go.
The single step into the void,
Your sole alternative to death.

Will you fly, and eagle-like,
Swiftly stoop, or float
On hidden currents?

Will you trust the wind?
Look, I'll show you how to step, and fall.
And rise.
