Left wing or right

Each wing, so differently designed,
some feathers short and others long,
and yet -- bone, muscle, feather --
all mirrored here; each side unique
and yet the same. Whatever differences
they may proclaim while on the ground
must surely be resolved in flight; when
working in concert to lift, or dive;
to soar above the sea, and glide
in perfect harmony. Left wing or right:
let all dissension cease, and lift
our one united heart in airborne song.
