High Flight

Now that I've got you in here you might as well read this.
This could possibly be the greatest poem ever written. (I'm sure most of y'all have seen this before but it's worth another read)

High Flight
Oh! I have slipped the surly 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 sunlit 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 windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew -
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

Pilot Officer John Gillespie Magee Jr
No 412 squadron, RCAF
Killed 11 December 1941

He flew a "Spitfire" during WWII.
"Enlightened statesmen will not always be at the helm." - James Madison
