 Romantic Notions By Ivy Rose


I become the air


when I glide over mountain tops



and rocky river beds



I am regal born to reign.



 



I have often been extolled



as an American icon



until the day that the bang



shut everything down.



I should be strong



soaring high with my radar sharp



but with one eye things look differently.



 



I can't gage things as well.



Sometimes what I need



scurries out of range



and my balance is off



so I start falling from the sky



or find myself upside down



unable to right a wrong.



 



I am abandoned by the others



because they are frightened of me



and so they stay away.



But I was born to fly



to glide over the Earth,



to perch atop a high nesting place



so I keep flying and I keep adapting.



 



I dream of being strong and bold again.



A royal becoming the air



skimming the mountains and the valleys



with my radar sharp as a razor.
