A POEM FOR LEUCOCEPHALUS; BALD EAGLE

(Fish Hawk)

Haliaeetus Leucocephalus

“ae ae aesculapius of the aether…

…originates as archaeopteryx” 

The aether’sarchaeopteryx reigns…

aloft, see in dreams… which aesclepius sustains…

for nature’s height hath caduceus brains…

So the ether’s archaeopteryx must…

rove the air, to tell… in trust…

adeptly weaving worlds… with words! …and while weaving… proceed thus…

past warps, till woofs… are producing… weft…

by ginning thoughts… joining right and left…

quixotically native… and… in… too…

mind’s anticipant weir… and seldom through.

Read and written, into minds…

transitioning thee through these riparian times…

duplicitous, anadromous, parties mine…

by stories, lore, in science, in time…

proceeding… in studies… voraciously fine…

crux on the scene of most difficult brine…

from whence the hominids chart; these the sapient times…

venturing from the silvic heights…

upon this cloth; this firma terre,

cried plane versus sphere in sacred rites

of mountain, meridian, land, sea and air

to order, learner… deciphering, tare

and place these cephal talons there…

into that sub limnol lair…

not thee? …and I… I… with cross to bear?

This and thus the learned yearner.

For born of open spaces, dreams,

where wanderers think… and… spirits seem…

The hearts and minds! …

of yearning persons…

thus:

A nation, built, with arch, with dome,

stands on lands, grains, timbers… lone

and free in mind this heart to roam

hath found thy dream, thy name, thy home.

Archaeopteryx is theorized to be demonstrative of the evolution of flight, and has paralells in theorry with the winged brood caduceus.
