CCC#56: Golden Lure

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #56

Eagle landing on a pole,
Locus bright
Talons caught upon the web
turning day to night
Eagle’s wing pinioned on a lyre
Vega was the ancient gyre
Remembered now, a star alone
Alas, the eagle turned to stone
Ivy tangles talons now
Polaris and a lesser plough

  5. I’m impressed by the rhyme of “lyre” with “gyre.”
