A Poem by a Member
Never ever will I watch the sea again
Never ever will I see the mountains again
Never ever will I follow the rugged road
Never ever will I hear the shrill cry of a golden eagle again
As it dives earthward for its prey
Spreading those gorgeous wings with the rushing wind
Against the backdrop of the evening sky.
Only in memory will I catch the glimpse
Only in memory can I see it all again
