Idea from Ms. Crous

Flight Away Mustn't stay Race the fierce wind Cool, dry and causing play Blustery gust lifts my feet, send Whirlwind twirl and scramble my horrid fiend Tomorrow the blast unknown to my fears give might Tomorrow the unknown don't be my end Fly me away to stay my friend Beyond my fears to pray Float now beyond The hard day Be gay Fight
