From poet-author Tony Hanna comes a heart-warming anthology of poetry that readers can feel and identify with. In The Love of an Eagle, a book published in February 2011, everyone gets a chance to experience, reminisce, and enjoy love; everyone gets to appreciate Australia; everyone gets to recognise special and wonderful people.

This collection of poems gives readers a glimpse of the man, the citizen, and the person the author is. In some poetic pieces, he describes the greatness and beauty of Australia; in others, he expresses his salute to Oprah, mothers, dads, and to his own parents; and in many, he shows his deepest sentiments to love and the love of his life. Emotive, evocative, and sentimental, the verses depict a wealth of beautiful endearments, honour, and admiration.    

“Poetry came easy to me; it all started when I was about seven years old. While writing my poetry, I thought that they were meaningless to other people but after showing them to some of my friends and family, I realised that they are worth sharing with people. This is why I want to share my poems with you,” reveals the author.

About the Author
Tony Hanna was born in Lebanon on January 12, 1961. He came to Australia in 1973 when he was twelve years old; he moved to Australia to be with his family who had already moved there. He really didn’t want to go, he cried for months. When he finally moved to Australia, it took him five years to love it; and now, he wouldn’t swap it for anything in the world. While growing up in Australia, he had gone to four different schools; he didn’t last long at any of the schools. He started work at the young age of thirteen; he worked in a fruit shop then moved on to other trades such as carpentry. He has always loved designing things and always has lots of ideas. He loves people and loves to give to people. He has never hated anyone or anything and he never would. He met the love of his life when he was nineteen; her name is Milia and he shares with her five sons: Paul, Jack, Daniel, Joey, and Johnny.
