Lines inspired by the desire of humans to fly like a bird.

Bird Man

by philipdodd

Bird has not the brain to dream to be a man. In his mind, a man can be a bird, to be a bird man. On a mountain, to perch, fly off, beyond the desire of Icarus. Soar over city towers,

splash through rock pools on the shore. Focus fades, energy exhausts, is a bird man no more.

This is a spirited piece. You did justice to the beautiful allegory of flight. You did justice to both Icarus and the Wright brothers. This was couched in words evoking great imagery. Great poem.
