Natural Flight

No propellers,

no jet engines,

no Whitcombe area rule

 

Individual feathers poised

guide a bird through the air

Flexible wings

flap gracefully, wing tips flip up

and the bird slides away

in manoeuvres vibrant and elegant

 

Propulsive efficiency

by effective feather array

Light bone structure,

aerodynamic  form

effecting minimum drag

 

and thus,

agile, natural flight
