A rather fantastical poem that looks indirectly at a phoenix.

The phoenix takes flight on wings of flame, 

Soaring like a meteor across the sky, 

And no one knows from whence it came; 


And all that hear its eerie cry

Look up to the heavens in awe, 

And breathe a deep wistful sigh, 


Wishing that by some bygone flaw, 

They too could be like that lovely creature

Flying toward the dark depths of Earth’s maw.
