An Eagle Has Landed

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: January 23, 2016

Remembering the musical artistry of Glenn Frey…

An Eagle has landed
and his landing proved sad.
"Take it easy" they say
but we're missing this lad
who flew with Don Henley
and taught us to sing
of hotels and new kids
and peaceful feelings.

And one of these nights
I'm sure you all know
we'll come to our senses
singing "Desperado."

We "boomers" are mourning
this Eagle who died.
He reached to the limit
as lyin eyes cried.

The heat is on, sadly.
There's heartache tonight.
Glenn Frey was a genius.
That songbird was bright.
