John Putnam, The dying eagle

The Dying Eagle

An hungry Eagle while watching for hares,
Was with a swift arrow shot thro' unawares,
She mournfully sigh'd before she departed,
At viewing the arrow with which she was darted.
It appeard the shaft which the mischief did bring,
Was made up of feathers from her own wing

John Putnam. AGe13. Salem. January 16th, 1816.
