Question

Where eagles soar

I stay no more

I rest among the stars.

While once I swore,

Not now, no more.

My life is told in scars.

When patch-eyed men

Come 'round again

Their lives are in my hand.

I'll stand up strong,

Release the throng--

What's blue I do command.

After a few rough edits...

Hmmmm. I thought of the gods first off. Am thinking its got something to do with avalanches or glaciers.

Eridanus (river), Cetus (sea monster/whale)

I'm probably getting further away from the answer but I might as well try.

Glaciers

let me explain...

Where eagles soar

I stay no more (the glaciers were huge LONG time ago...so the ice/water would be higher in the air, but now its in the ocean so its not as high)

I rest among the stars.(stars/sun heats them up; they "rest"/melt and are no longer the glaciers they once were)

While once I swore,

Not now, no more.

My life is told in scars. (scars= rivers/streams/canyons/mountains the glaciers cut into the earth while moving over time)

When patch-eyed men (sailors/pirates)

Come 'round again

Their lives are in my hand. (now the glaciers are melted and its the ocean)

I'll stand up strong,

Release the throng-- (had to look up that word; could be like an armaggedon type situation; maybe the next ice age where the glaciers make their re-appearance)What's blue I do command.

None so far, but ocean was the right idea, although that might be a bit misleading.

Thanks PG. ;)

And tmo, I enjoyed your explanation. It's not what I had in mind, though.

Callisto

I like this answer. Was thinking less specific

sirens? they are often depicted with wings but soar no more - dont know but got to think there is some association with some celestial body - lure sailers/rule the seas - not sure about releasing the throngs bit

another passing thought - mermaid?

Added this first verse. Also, changed the dominant pronoun from "I" to "he" because it bothered me. I'm thinking about writing yet another verse, as well. =P Enjoy.

Of eight score men

He's one of them.

And further, one of six.

While still alive

'Til forty-five

He holds this known prefix.

Where eagles soar

He stays no more

He rests among the stars.

While once he swore,

Not now, no more.

His life is told in scars.

When patch-eyed men

Come 'round again

Their lives are in his hand.

He'll stand up strong,

Release the throng--

What's blue he does command.

EDIT: Changed Until to 'Til for good measure (pun intended).

None so far, but nice Hawks reference, t_mo! =P

The Chess_Vixen has hound dogged her way onto the right trail.

And sorry, PG. No dogs allowed on this ship.
