Default High Flight NOTAM

HIGH FLIGHT

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds (1) of Earth

and danced the skies (2) on laughter-silvered wings;


sunward I've climbed (3), and joined the tumbling mirth (4)

of sun-split clouds (5) - and done a hundred things

you have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung (6)

high in the sunlit silence (7). Hov'ring there

I've chased the shouting wind along (8), and flung

my eager craft through the footless halls of air (9).


Up, up the long delirious burning blue (10)

I've topped the windswept heights (11) with easy grace

where never lark, or even eagle flew (12).


And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod

the high untrespassed sanctity of space,

put out my hand (13), and touched the face of God.


-John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
