by Alfred Tennyson, Lord (1809 - 1892)

The eagle
Language: English 
Available translation(s): GER
He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.
