VI. Animate Nature
The Eagle
Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
 
A Fragment

HE clasps the crag with hookèd hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ringed with the azure world, he stands.
 
The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,        5
And like a thunderbolt he falls.
