The wright brothers

The wright brothers

A Poem by Emily Dickinson Jr.

a poem about the wright brother....


There were two men of Wright

Responsible for controlling man’s first flight


As children they were given

A copter made of bands and ribbon

Held together tight


Deconstruct and copying

By, and by the twilight

Filled their dim-lit childhood nights


When their mother died

They left school and pursued their lives


Ink stained their hands until they planned

And wheels fell in their lap

All to profit the pursue of mighty wing flaps


One, two … three’s the charm

For gliding high with much alarm


They were the first to break on through

The nevers and unpracticals

They followed through


But stayed in the shadows unrecognized

Until to LeMans , France they flew to high


And the world accepted these two guys

With wonder gleaming from their eyes


Even today, long passed their Demise

We proud people fly on high

You've written about the Wright brothers in a very elegant manner. This is good stuff and the rhythm and rhyming is excellent. However you should fix your punctuation adding full stops when necessary. Aside from that, great work
