Lost on Earth

Nothing is sadder to a soaring eagle,

used to flying above the highest ridges

and to defying the top of the volcanoes,

than to be obliged to walk on earth,

like men and those other animals

that live on the ground floor.

Crooked by the suns, rains and snows

of countless days, nights and seasons,

it is unable to raise that ultimate flight

to the last sleep on the rocky caves,

around its native country the skies.
