Looking at poems

How dose the speaker show feelings about authority in Hawk Roosting?

In hawk roosting the story is told from a hawks point of view. In the very first line we see that this Hawk believes he has a higher authority. “I sit on top of the world, my eyes closed.” It gives an image of carmnes and a relaxed attitude, this makes us feel the Hawk belongs in this portion of authority.
