Analysis of The American Eagle
He flies high in the sky, so proud and free,
Loving his homeland, which he'll never flee,
His head's so bright against the light blue skies,
A sparkle shines in his deep, dark eyes,
His wings are wide as he soars through the air,
As if he's watching over America from way up there,
Of course, I speak of the bird that's so majestic and regal,
Our beautiful National symbol, the beloved American Eagle.
