In Honor of Eddie the Eagle and Progeny

eagle youngster waits
on his father's empty perch
no one will return

P.S. "Eddie the Eagle" used to sit on the lamppost on Hwy. 520 going to/from Seattle. He died last year when he dove to the lake and didn't realize a car was coming. This year, a younger eagle has appeared on Eddie's previous perch. And sometimes there are two young bald eagles there.
