Itís Time To Fly!
By: Donna Haug
September 13, 2003
Snuggled down in my warm nest
Peeking through the leafy trees,
I enjoyed a lovely view,
Pleasure sweeping over me.
Imagine, then, my fright when first
My mother nudged me to the edge.
I thought sheíd turned her back on me!
She firmly pushed me off the ledge!
My fledgling wings flapped frantically
While right behind I heard her cry,
ďThatís right, babe! Just keep on going!
Come on now! Itís time to fly!Ē
All at once I realized
On that first desperate solo flight
My wings were made for flying high!
And, somehow, it just felt so right!
I wasnít very strong at first
But Mother hovered always near
Watching oíer my every move
Assuring me Iíd naught to fear.
Suddenly, I started falling
But, behind I heard a cry.
Mother swooped right down and caught me
Carried me up to the sky.
High above the puffy clouds,
Soaring on the constant wind,
I canít believe the view from here -
Snow capped mountains without end.
Lovely valleys, mighty rivers
Rolling hills and ocean vast
How awesome is Your world, my Lord!
Look! I am flying high at last!
God, my nest is safe and warm
But, listen to my heartís deep cry.
Knowing you have much more for me
Lord, I pray, teach me to fly!
