Some Can Fly

Some Can Fly

When I was young, I wished

To fly, and I glared with the greenest

Envy at those who were born with wings.

Now?  Hahahahaha. I long only now

To one day walk truly and well;

To give thanks purely for the shelter

That the earth provides;

To wonder like a child at the author of

The flight

Of others; and to drink in deeply all

The colors of the path

I was forged to trod. Once

One sees even a graceful hawk crash to earth, or merely

Struggle against the frigid wind, it seems quite stupid

To ask why some can fly and others

Not.
