The Blue Bird's Flight Through Poetry's Teachings

Limericks, sonnets, and great epic tales

Flash steadily before my looming view

My fervor while reading, which never fails

Brings delight and joy from stories anew.

Voyaged to whereabouts both near and far

From this point of time to years long ago

Feeling the crisp air while in a fast car

To the wind sailing a ship to and fro.

I read of journeys in Homer’s stories

And sensed the emotion in current songs

Through lines and stanzas detailing glories

The most precious actions needn’t length long.

Paragraphs didn’t free me like blue birds

The resilient parts arose from few words.
