We were eating dinner on the deck
when a bird with an incredible wing span
swooped through the air overhead.
We watched it glide over the lake
to the tip-top of a tree.
Once it sat still, we realized
it was a bald eagle.
My 84-year-old grandma
screamed with delight,
stunned to actually see one
with her very own eyes.
Soon, it was joined by two other eagles.
As if aware of our
excitement and curiosity,
the eagles entertained us
throughout our stay,
gliding over our heads,
perching on the highest branches
and even posing for pictures.
