The eagle alfred lord tennyson 1809 1892

The EagleAlfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)

He clasps the crag with crooked 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,

And like a thunderbolt he falls.
