plated metal scales and transparent glass eyes
symmetrical round wings aiding to your rise
protector of the people and weightless in the sky
penetrate the currents of judicious July
elegant and swift, your metallic flaming tail
trailing dust in distance, you’re faster than the gale!
take me somewhere else safe within your arms
somewhere without pains and all the little harms
take me on an adventure to a place way out there
faster and faster, flutter through air!
when we land safely back to earth, you may rest your wings once more
but you were born to fly the skies, the realm you’re destined for.
