Learning to Fly

I read this quote here: "Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go."  ~T.S. Eliot

…so I tell her the words
I always wanted to hear
‘Trust faith, take risks,
Learn to fly, my dear’
For we’ll never know
If we stay, perched on our feet
What lies beyond
Where the sea and sky meet

  1. These are lovely words Janet ~ I specially like trust faith, take risks & see what lies beyond ~

  2. Ah.. the horizon holds a lot of mystery and promise. We must try to spread our wings and use the gifts we have been given. Such a pretty poem.

  3. As we teach them to fly they seem to teach us as well:) Thank-you for reading and sharing.Yes, Margaret it takes bravery at times to employ our gifts, but oh, the reward is sweet!


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
