Well I left off wishing all a happy flight
but knowing we haven't ended the mile
For some Bards are still sending up feathers
and it's good they are doing it with a smile

Sometimes the feather pen will fly to heights
and even transcends to mountains untold
Not to question it's reason while on it's trip
for who knows what the heart really holds

But think on how boring this world would be
if everybody's writing was just alike
Well it wouldn't leave room for much enjoyment
so lets all get in line and enjoy the hike

Everybody can't write a blushing love story
nor does everyone write to lift someone up
and there are those who don't write humourous verse's
but they do know how to fill an empty cup

For there's a little bit going on in everybody's life
so I dare not try to walk a mile in their shoes
but what I can do is to encourage them along
and let one's conscience help them to choose

So write about love in all it's splendor
express your hurts if you must do so
but spare your anger toward other bards
for one of their pens may be one to let you know

How to get beyond, pains and rejections
not with words of hate, but to heal
and there are some who has a sense of compassion
that's willing to help you, through the ordeal

Now though this flight may seem a bit long
but everything must happen in it's time
for there is a real God that will help all people
and he wants us to be, of one heart and one mind

What a lovely ending to part one ;) The conclusion is just as astounding. Your words are beautiful, Mary. I envy (don't take that the wrong way, lol) your style of quilling.

Warm Love
