    Not the pride, nor ample pinion,
    That the Theban eagle bear,
    Sailing with supreme dominion
    Thro' the azure deep of air.

But he not less the eagle.

No more through rolling clouds to soar again,
Viewed his own feather on the fatal dart,
And wing'd the shaft that quivered in his heart.
