Airborne For Philip Housiaux - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

Always airborne an Albatross
can easily vast oceans cross
They eat and sleep upon the wing
and rarely land for anything.
But even Albatrosses mate
although more often isolate.
They come together as a pair.
You cannot raise chicks in the air.
But once the young have learnt to fly.
Received the freedom of the sky.
They the resume the seperate
life style they appreciate.
An Albatross prefers to be
left alone completely free.

    The complete sonnet form or must be very close - if I recall with the change of view or interruption in the right place? Any case this is precise descriptive work that is outstanding, making irony off the extraordinary endurance of these magnificent creatures.I am sure I would have written that, but let me declare an interest: to find my name attached over such acute observational writing on one of nature's wonders - well magnificent.
