Let Us Fly!


We will learn to fly
when our spirits set us free.
What joy it will be!

we do,
there are few
who can achieve
scarce sweet destiny,
cutting bonds, as they leave
strong restraint bound gravity
powered through a lifted wingspan,
forged from within, with pure energy.
Only wearing cool garb, like Superman’s.



Author Notes:

Here is another statue out at that Sculpture Gardens. When I first spotted this one, I thought, “Goodness, what can I say about this one?” Well, here it is.

This poem is a combination of two formats, the 5-7-5 and the Ehteree. Both are syllable based formats. The 5-7-5 is a 3 line poem with the syllable counts just like the name suggests. An Etheree is a 10 line poem that builds line per line from 1 syllable up to 10. Neither requires rhyme or meter.

However, for this poem I used Rhyme, Alliteration, and Caesura.

I chose these two in order for the text layout to actually mimic the form of the statue some what.
