We can fly long distances in an airplane,
float weightlessly in the sky in a hot air balloon,
hover in a helicopter.
We can soar in a glider,
ride above the ocean with a para-sail,
or above the land with a hang glider.
We can do loop de loops in a trick plane,
hug cliffs as we traverse mountain top to valley in a flying suit,
fall straight from the sky with a parachute.
But to really fly,
to do all of that,
requires being a bird.
No wonder their “words” are called songs.
