Bernoulli's Dream Poem by Douglas Nichols

Bernoulli's Dream

A bird in flight
Is a miraculous sight.
One wonders how such things occur.

It's the shape of the wing
And the feathers designing
That allows birds to lift and to soar.

Each surface of the wing,
In length is varying,
Causing airflow to differ on each side.

There's a difference in pressure,
On top being the lesser;
Thus, the bird is pushed up and can glide.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Bernoulli's law demonstrates differentials in pressure, which can be applied to many things, especially the law of flight. Basic law, which is easy to understand, but appears miraculous!
