Ralph Waldo Emerson, comp. (1803–1882).  Parnassus: An Anthology of Poetry.  1880.
 
The Eagle
By Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809–1892)
 
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.
