While I was on a woodland walk,

A hawk went flying by–

How easily he soared aloft

In autumn’s azure sky!

O, to ride those lofty winds

Like hawks and eagles do;

To see the rivers, lakes, and woods

From heaven’s bird’s-eye view.

Entranced, I thought to be a hawk

Would truly be so nice–

Until I suddenly recalled

That hawks eat snakes and mice!
