Glenday, John: Landscape with flying man

Portre of Glenday, John

Landscape with flying man (English)

I ready about him that was given wings.
His father fixed those things to carry him away.

They carried him halfway home, and then he fell.
And he fell not because he flew

but because he loved it so.  You see
it’s neither pride, nor gravity but love

that pulls us back down to the world.
Love furnishes the wings, and that same love

will watch over us as we drown.
The soul makes a thousand crossings, the heart, just one.
