    HIGH FLIGHT

    By Pilot Officer John G. Magee Jr.

    Oh! I have slipped the surely bonds of earth

    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;

    Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth

    Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things

    You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung

    High in the sunlight silence. Hov'ring there,

    I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung

    My eager craft through footless halls of air.

    Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue

    I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace

    Where never lark, or even eagle flew -

    And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod

    The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

    Put out my hand and touched the face of God




    Godspeed sir.
    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -
