My Beautiful Finch

Flying on her own path

leaving a streak in the sky

fearing the obstacles that are within her

chosen path.

Do not worry about our differences

for we are all different

not one of us is the same

some things are common

the rest are not.

Your strong belief of soaring

is the reason why I love you

you soar until you can no more

you lead our young ones to soar

you lead me to want to soar some more.

She has the coloring of perfection

the beak of a warbler

every trait of her is my favorite.

Even if I got to select again

I would still always choose you

my beautiful finch.

In honor of Charles Darwin's birthday being today. Here is a poem I wrote from the point of view of him describing his wife, Emma.
