Wit and Wing

 

A cage of ignorance
has built itself around
our children.

Too many live
in a warm comfort,
freely lounging
on sofas –
thoughtless sofas of respite.

Oh, but those who bend
bars by wit, who refuse
the lazing charms;
they are beating
skyward
past earth’s dull pull,
seeking
the thermals of knowledge!

These are the ones I watch
of a day,
feeling my soul rise
and course
with them.
