fly like an eagle


“Aye, glen eyrie…
valley of eagles’s nest,”

spoken by scottish landscaper
adopted by american railroad tycoon
as name for estate & manor

dream designed for cherished “queen”
nestled within rocky mountains
stone garden of the gods

she suffered heart attack
never lived in her castle

    A story similar to that of Boldt Castle (Thousand Islands). As those great theologians, Kansas, used to intone: “Dust in the wind….”

      I’d never heard of Boldt Castle so looked it up. Yes, very intriguing and similar stories. Glen Eyrie now belongs to The Navigators as a Christian conference center.

        Cool. Boldt Castle is owned, and being built, by New York state parks system (I think). The children’s playhouse on the island is bigger than the house in which I live.
