Hawks

Look in the blue to see valor galore
Elegant dance of beauty, behold
Long gentle strides of vertical motion
Held in the air by strength, be told
Soar, hawk, soar, with pure effort undying
Soar, hawk, glide, beauty, flying, flying, flying

Now look, now listen!  How resilient and proud
Much prouder than might be showing
Now brave and strong, from tip to tip
Wings of mighty honor, brilliantly glowing
Soar, show us the swiftness of speed unlying
Soar, hawk, glide, beauty, flying, flying, flying

Now trust, pure in honor, will eternally remain
Over land, sea, and air; a sight they will be
Never will they die; a memory for our soul
Forever will they thrive; forever a sight to see
Soar, hawk, soar, with pure effort undying
Now glide, beauty, glide, flying, flying, flying
