Yearning to Fly

A Poem By Bernadette // 1/6/2009

It may seem like nonsense, but it is so true
That many have never flew
There is the cat, which yearns to fly as the sparrow flutters
There is the spider, which begs to fly like the buzzing fly
There is the dog, which yelps when the bird flies beyond his reach
There is the rabbit, which leaps to fly, yet falls to the ground
There is the pig, which thinks pigs fly, but when he tries, he fails at first sight
There is the hamster, which jumps off the bed, hoping to fly though never will
There is the frog, which does not mind, for his tongue is long enough to eat the fly
There are creatures, which roam the earth, each have beauty but they cannot fly
Do not forget me, for I wish to fly, on the eagle’s wings
