Flight Fascinates Me

Flight fascinates me,
Often having shared
The envy of valleys,
When in need of lifting—
Submerged and cleaned
Nearly out of sight…

The vulture
Above such tragedy
Delights in sky,
High over rapids
Awaiting hospitality
Of the left behind
Defeated on the banks…

I prune my wings—
Most birds think
I’m mad;
For no such feathers
Have they seen,
And no assuring flutter comes
From their awkward dangle
With graceless bends and folds;
So the wager is against me—
Nests worth of seeds…

But to every mortal once
The impossible
Is made real;
And the human soul is lifted
In a way all Nature feels—
So the wise old owl
Tells the betting finch
(Always in a hurry)
“Hedge some of your store;
My mouse is on human—
From Wright to Glenn
We’ve seen this critter soar….”
