Only the Wing By Randy James Hoffman

It was only the first time,
I never knew.
I never knew it would be like this.
The very Earth moving in my hand.
I tried to understand it.
How this could come to be.
Ah you are young my friend,
and filled with prophecy.
Only the lover can know the kiss,
only the poet can know the word,
only the dancer the movements,
only the wing the bird.
