Carl Sandburg - Flying Fish

I HAVE lived in many half-worlds myself … and so I know you.
  
I leaned at a deck rail watching a monotonous sea, the same circling birds and the same plunge of furrows carved by the
plowing keel.
  
I leaned so … and you fluttered struggling between two waves in the air now … and then under the water and out
again … a fish … a bird … a fin thing … a wing thing.
  
Child of water, child of air, fin thing and wing thing … I have lived in many half worlds myself … and so I know
you.
