Air and Ground People

Flight and song attract, fascinate and enchant earth-bound people

Yellow Warbler from the online Audubon Field Guide

The people of the air
have feathers and
their feet wrap around sticks.
They have good song memory
unlike some ground folks
without feathers.

Spartanburg Flying Festival

Feet on the ground people
are so fascinated by flight
they build flying toys
and tubes that cross the oceans
with large parking lots for them
and access and exit roads
For lift off and landing.
