  • Some fly on gilded wings
    Pleasing to the eye
    From the very beginning
    Born to bring joy
    By nature of their very existence

    Some fly with propellers
    And big science-y named
    Contraptions they've invented
    Thinking their way into
    The heavens

    Some fly as dreamers
    And their feet needn't
    Ever leave the ground
    Flights of fancy take them
    As high as the others

    Some fly with bedsheets
    Taped about their shoulders

    Next time you go out
    Into that big blue world
    Bring your cape,
    And I'll wear mine too

    (No time to proofread that. Violin lesson in a minute. But, maybe it's better this way--- organic, unedited.
    Anyway, this was inspired by Hawkeye's lovely post here: High In the Sky )
