El Cruz del Condor

PERU | Wednesday, 14 May 2008 | Views [546]

A soaring adult condor.

A soaring adult condor.

If I could,

Oh, how I would,

Love to fly on the breeze.

But if I could fly,

Just how would I

Choose my set of wings?

The quick darting flight

Of a swallow so bright

It too hurried for my taste.

Likewise the Kestrel,

Or the high-diving Petrel,

Where do they go with such haste?

Parrots are gaudy,

And geese too bawdy,

And owl hold such strange hours.

Could I instead be a seagull?

Or a powerful eagle?

Or a hummingbird among flowers?

Oh, were I to fly,

And explore open sky,

And revel in all that space,

I'd spread wings and soar

Like the mighty condor,

Epitome of freedom and grace.
