Fledgling

  

His face to the world

is now a man’s face.

His reasoning is clear;

his humor is maturing.

We can discuss world events 

and he brings thoughtful analysis 

and fresh insight.

But

the clearest sign

that there is still need

for growth 

is his utter conviction

of his correctness.

There is a little ache

in my heart that throbs

when he shows that 

he has no awareness 

of how new

he is to  

flight
