O The Wonder Of A Bicycle

O the wonder of a bicycle—
the closest thing a child has to becoming a robin.
Taken off perch with a spring in the step,
how the perspective changes,
in the zigzag of peddling freedom,
as the neighbor boy sees him whisk by
and whispers in a covetous tone—
“Man, he was flying!”
