Our HERO has "Flown West...." 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; hovering 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 eagle ever 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.
