Feather

A slight departure, in that there is no theme, as such... but, but, but, but, my winged friends... Poem Pigeon insists that your poem is 10 lines long, no more, no less. And it must contain the word feather. (At a push it could be a variant of feather, an adjective or verb form rather than a noun - e.g. feathery or feathered. But in some shape or form 'feather' must be contained in the 10 lines.)

Happy writing!
