The People Could Fly:

They say the people could fly. Say that long ago in Africa, some of the people knew magic. And they could walk up on the air like climbin’ on a gate. And they fly like blackbirds over the fields. Black, shiny wings flappin’ against the blue up there.

 Say the people who could fly kept their power, although they shed their wings…

 Virginia Hamilton (1985)
