Come to the Edge

Come to the edge.
We might fall.
Come to the edge.
It's too high!
COME TO THE EDGE!
And they came,
and he pushed,
and they flew.


Christopher Logue

British poet, 1926-2011

The poem was written in 1968 for a festival in honor of the 50th anniversary 
of the death of the french poet Guillaume Apollinaire.
