airplane taking off

The slow parade, the idle wait,
Then suddenly a roar
As if the lions as king of beasts
Were all declaring war.

No matter if the concrete looks
As smooth as sheltered bay,
There’s rattle and there’s rumble as
The tires roll down the way. 

A quietness then within the roar
Like donuts with a hole.
And quickly doubled (quiet and smooth) –
The fish leaped from the bowl!
