The Flight of Thomas Morray

Thomas Morray was a friend of mine He had this obsession with wanting to fly He began to study the skeletons of birds which provided his volcabulary with the strangest of words He professed he longed for his sternum to be fused, so to strengthen his muscles, when in flight he would use; these conversations left me oddly amused and to be quite frank, very confused I mis-understood his studies to be for fabrication; of metal, paper or other type construction; I began to believe he himself a bird-brain, I thought it was some sort of mental type strain I visited Thomas Morray twice a week, at the place where he lived; listened to his stories of birds and of twigs Until, on one stop, the nurses said Thomas is ready to die I bent down and whispered, "Now's your chance, Thomas Morray, Fly, fly, fly"

    The subject of this poem was very interesting and it kept my attention throughout the poem. The rhyming was done very well, and there is a nice rhythm to the words here. Great work, Regina!

    Thanks Kelly for reading.. I have an acre backyard. Enclosed and surrounded by 20ft. Oleander trees - at sunset birds fly in from everywhere - they get so loud fighting for a place to roost, they command your thought- hence the poem.
