Jumbo jet or jackdaw

If only we could fly like 
those that tweet or hoot
without aid of jet or 
parachute

For I sure don't like 
wings that roar
just so that they take off 
and soar

Ah to fly without diesel 
or fuel
Oh to halt that midair 
duel

Birds they don't pollute 
the air
nor need they any airline 
fare

So if only I too could rise 
and glide
and let the wind be my 
sole guide

I'd be happy to fly all the 
way to 'em' stars
if I was assured I'd risk 
no charred scars.

Flying without aviation 
formalities
I could be sightseeing 
many more cities

Ah I so wish to fly just 
like a jay or jackdaw
Then I'd fly across all and 
every border
For I'd know nor follow
no man-made law!

    Aloha... enlightening thoughts and very well done young poet... the last two lines say the truth within... "For I'd know nor follow no man-made law!" this is the true freedom offered by such aforementioned thoughts... travelling with the power assist of one's mind... all of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michael.
