The Lone Eagle Counts

The lone eagle counts
O'er the dusky alpine mounts
The streaks of smoke rising
From the civilization dwelling beneath,
The gasping cries the wind would sing
While passing by some unknown heath!

The lone eagle counts
The mysteries of the unknown sounds
The sweet twinkling of the bells
In the calmness of the foothill temples,
The dulcet tones and train if yells
Of the reapers and roamers, the sloping vales!

The lone eagle counts
Diving down the alpine mounts
Listening to the unknown sounds
Feeling the stretch of horizon's bounds
As it sails and sails high in the sky
The joy of ride; till it could fly!
