Mister Snow Petrel

Hey Mr Snow Petrel you're special
Well versed in the skills of flight
But unlike Jonathon Seagull
You still have a limited

I watch your manouvreable body
Surfing the waves of the day
Planing on every air current
You really know how to fly

Applying the laws of dynamics
You could teach Orville and Wright
Breaking the barriers before you
You are a majestic kite

With all of your beauty and knowledge
I cannot quite understand
Why you soar so high above me
Or hide in the rocks of the land

If you could sit on my shoulder
And share an experience or two
We would both be a little richer
Intimacy is known by so few
