Flying - Poem by Alexandra Motschmann

Icarus was the first

he had this thirst

for reach the sky

and he had to die


Da Vinci came next

brought it into context

with mechanical invention

an extraordinary vision


Lilienthal used his own design

stayed in the air for some time

but failed in the end

no more life in his hand


The brother Wright

both bold and bright

and developed a plane

a milestone to proclaim


More and more inventions

with good and bad intentions

and so man could fly

to the endless sky
