On the Wing On the Wing

On the Wing
By Hilary McLellan

Teach me to be a bird on the wing
to float high on fresh, cool currents of air
to savor the panorama around me, the breeze,
the power that holds me aloft.

Teach me how to move in the air,
to navigate the currents
on a magic carpet that seems alive,
that shares its power to hold me aloft.
