Quotation: 

Skirting the river road (my forenoon walk, my rest,)
Skyward in air a sudden muffled sound, the dalliance of eagles,
The rushing amorous contact high in space together,
The clinching interlocking claws, a living, fierce, gyrating wheel,
Four beating wings, two beaks, a swirling mass tight grappling,
In tumbling turning clustering loops, straight downward falling...
