Wearing Borrowed Wings - Inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia

A Poem By Delaney // 3/7/2008

I am just a stone

I was not meant to fly.

The sunken ships and fallen stars

Have landed where I lie.



Lion of the sky,

Why would you leave your throne?

And land among the fallen stars

To see a simple stone?



Falling through the blue

To where you are the sky.

Leaning on your golden wings

And learning how to fly.



I am just a stone

Wearing borrowed wings

One hour in the sky with you

Is quite enough for me.
