Skylark I sail with you as the morning 
breaks the sky and sun cuts through 
like dancing diamonds cruising 
the aqua sea.

Axis on a wheel of lonely flight
I offer you these hours of dark 
nights for those whose lives are solitary
too. Beethoven I turn up on the patio,
higher and higher for you to hear the 

But you advance to dive and catch
a beetle or a sticky fly. You prefer
to offer them to your female while
ignoring this striking opus.

Congrats on the feature. The skylark (alauda) an interesting bird. They named a Buick after him. In the Navy, if your mind was soaring instead of paying attention you were said to be "skylarking." Nice write.
