Oh - I Can Fly! - Poem by Dorothy M. Center

I can fly - I can fly
On wings of angels
High - High
I can fly - I can fly!

Above the earth
Above the wind - rain
All the unimportant
Conflights of mankind

I can fly - I can fly!
So far above - the universe the same
Why - why are there enemies
When we can fly - we can fly!

I can fly - I can fly
To that distant land
Over the highest mountains - the vast seas
Into the realm of space
And all the way back again!

    Yes, I agree, it is nice to fly, but we eventually have to land somewhere, rather another place and not all the way back again'. I don't think we can avoid our problmes for long. (Report) Reply
