Flying High

A dragonfly set out to explore She flew up high so she could see more Gliding on air she saw the sun shining bright Her wings shimmered and shone in the morning light Extending her wings higher still she flew Leaving familiar sights far behind Flying on, refused to stay confined Meeting strangers, she took great delight Some of them engaged her in a fight; Triumphant, the heights she continued to climb. She flew past mountains and rivers deep Foregoing hunger, forgetting sleep Flying on till she could see no more She started to dive; her wings were sore Graceful she fell, her life's adventure complete.   Penmancy gets a small share of every purchase you make through these links, and every little helps us continue bringing you the reads you love!
