The Wright Brothers - Poem by Rohini Gupta

While Wilbur looked up in the sky

Young Orville asked the God, why

Only the birds have wings to fly

The brave and the wise never cry

They keep their eyes always dry

From taking a risk, they don't shy

So the two brothers, gave it a try

Easily now, we can travel so high

    I was attracted to this poem because I share the last name WRIGHT with the brothers. But this is somewhat corny and I'd avoid mentioning God in a poem and avoid using end-rhyme. You need to go beyond the spiritual and try and figure out just what it was that motivated the WRIGHTS to launch at Kitty Hawk. (Report) Reply
