Flight on Newborn Wings by Thomas Neil

Flight on Newborn Wings by Thomas Neil

Bitten broken leaves,

Bent from their branches by tiny little thieves.

Cocooned and caged as it makes changes for life,

Suddenly breaking through like a sharp-thorned knife.

First deep breath as it breaks forth to flee,

Unexpectedly spinning through the skies so free.

Once it felt like it was dying,

Now so graceful and beauty without even trying.

Now life is so bright,

Riding the sunlight as it takes flight.

Children standing watch as it flutters on by,

Little ones chasing with their gleeful cry.

Such delicate grace upon such fragile wings,

Their sweet unspoken song of nature’s queens and kings.
