An eagle's nest on the head of an old redwood on one of the precipice-footed ridges Above Ventana Creek, that jagged country which nothing but a fallen meteor will ever plow: no horseman Will ever ride there, no hunter cross this ridge but the winged ones, no one will steal the eggs from this fortress. The she-eagle is old, her mate was shot long ago, she is now mated With a son of hers. When lightning blasted her nest she built it again on the same tree, in the splinters of the thunder bolt. In a broken shack an old man takes his time about dyin' And just at the back a wild flowerbed that he'll lie in In dawn's new light a man might venture A horse drawn stage from Monterey. The she-eagle is older than I: she was here when the fires of eighty-five raged on these ridges, She was lately fledged and dared not hunt ahead of them, but ate scorched meat. The world has changed in her time; humanity has multiplied, But not here; men's hopes and thoughts and customs have changed, their powers are enlarged, their powers and their follies have become fantastic. Spilled down the hill a wagon load of bodies lay scattered, shipwrecked at sea. Limestone ore is all that
