Hawk descending

Here's another of my poems

Hawk descending

I saw a Hawk hovering in the wind
"What a noble beast", thought I
Its wings caressed the air
Like a lover's touch
Then Suddenly,
It shot from its airy perch
And descending
Caught a clumsy hare

In death's embrace

Very often
Things that are lovely
Turn out to be
Birds of prey!
