Bald Eagle – The Arrow

Bald Eagle

The Arrow

The archer pulls the taut string aft
and with it slides the narrow shaft.
Notched in place does arrow wait
to be released and reach its fate.
The energy that is kept pent
does now propel the weapon sent.
When so done, flies it for sure.
The arrow's target won't endure.
