Birds fly, words fly, why can’t I?

“My words fly up, my thoughts remain below: Words without thoughts never to heaven go.”
King: Hamlet (III, iii, 100-103)

Birds fly, words fly, why can't I?
Birds fly, words fly, why can’t I?

Birds fly, words fly, time flies, why can’t I? One can, if one is only willing to soar in imagination.

In Hamlet, the King had just risen from his prayers when he spoke these words. His insincere words had no true meaning and therefore remained earth-bound.
