Birds Flying High


Thousands of birds.
Flying high!


These birds keep a watchful eye,
On things below.


These birds watch the movement of a
Hurricane's eye.


These birds help to navigate ships sailing
On the ocean blue below.


These high flying birds keep an eye on
The depleting ozone layer from above.


These birds from above tell farmers when to begin
Planting crops.


These birds help raise the common people's voice!
Above a dictatorships strife!


Where would we be without these
High Flying Birds?

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
