May Your Wings Soar by Andrew McDowell

May your wings soar

May your wings soar into skies blue!
We knew it would come; it is true.
Oh, the times we had were the best,
Now we embark on a new quest,
Like all those before us who flew.

River we first saw, not we knew,
Overcoming and coming through,
When facing every new test,
May your wings soar!

Glad we made it yet so sad too.
I shall remember all of you.
Part of us remains in our nest,
Whilst we fly, above the rest,
Along rivers, into skies blue,
May your wings soar!

Welcome to MasticadoresUSA.

MasticadoresUSA was founded by Juan Re Crivello as part of Gobblers/Masticadores in 2021. Its current editor is Gabriela Marie Milton.

MasticadoresUSA features talented writers of poetry and short prose. We primarily publish writers who write in English, and are based in the USA. However, while the publication language remains English, we also welcome the work of our fellow writers from all over the world.

What do we want to bring to our readers? Edgar Allan Poe once wrote: Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words. This is what we are committed to bringing to you. And that’s not an easy endeavor. 


If you want to submit, please send your work – poetry and/or short prose – to In addition to the piece(s), you want to have published, we need your name, and the address of your site. Submit your work as a docx attachment – not in the body of the email. Limit your submission to two pieces.  We do not accept pieces longer than 300 words.

What are the themes that we are looking for? Surprise us!

However, MasticadoresUSA does not publish any work that contains racist, homophobic, sexist, and hate talk of any kind.

Looking forward to your submissions.

    Wonderful form with a paced flow and rhyme scheme. Light and lyrical with a touch of melancholy. Musical to the ear and moving. Well done Andrew!

  4. Thanks, everyone. It was written in memory of my college graduation. The photo was taken there; the mascot was the Seahawk.

    What beautiful imagery, I picture life and the lessons we learn and soaring home when it is time to go. Then a new batch of young ones to follow and not everyone does as good as those before them but we must give it a try. Thank you for sharing. Have an amazing and creative week. Joni
