Today’s Poem ~ A Drunk Pilot Whispers in the Wind

A Drunk Pilot Whispers in the Wind (Inspired by William Wadsworth)

Drunk Pilot (guest poet)

My head spins round and round on high
As I command this drunken flight
But once, long ago, I too would sigh
At rainbows in the sky’s delight

Yet now I am a pilot, inebriated
No longer just a dreaming youth
My life is filled with joys that are debated
As I soar through the clouds, uncouth

But even as I stumble through the air
I cannot help but feel a sense of cheer
For though I am a man now, impaired
The child in me is still very near

So let me fly, despite my state
For in this moment, I am free
And when I grow old, let me relate
The tales of my wild youth, with glee

 

Poem available on the Drunk Pilot along with entertaining stories.
