Learning to Fly: Print on Matte Versions 20×16 and 10×8

Written by on June 13, 2013 with 0 Comments


A beautiful graduation gift!


 Learning to Fly

“The winds may blow against you,
cold and sharp and strong.
But nothing can restrain you:
know that you belong . . .
“Now fly and do so happily!
You have passed the test.
But know that you will always be
a child in our nest.”


Your son or daughter will love this poem, and so will you. The 20 by 16 inch piece is the original long version of the poem.  The 10 by 8 inch piece has the short version. The text is white on all versions.  Your graduate’s photograph will look great here!
