Unsung Heroes

They came in all wet and weary...slimed head to tail...

These were the eagles who fought... and lived, in fighting did not fall...

Strong knowing hands washed every bird... so feathers and down would fluff.

Hands felt the trembling bodies, trying hard to be rough.

The eagles came away from washing, with feathers that now were clean.

The volunteers were heroes now! Their efforts great... not seen.
