flying birdI wonder if a bird can fly so high

It sees the place where the sea leaves the sky.

Does it behold the earth curving away far below,

Emerald and sapphire in the sun’s radiant glow?

Do fowl of the air watch day dawn and day set,

Hovering high in the air, defying gravity’s net?

Have they, ever since they have flown,

Of the earth’s spherical shape known?
