Last Flight

This page is offered as a tribute to, and in memory of, those airmen who have gone ahead.

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 unsurpassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.


--Pilot Officer Gillespie Magee, RCAF, Killed 11 December 1941

    Eulogy For A Veteran

    Do not stand at my grave and weep;
    I am not there, I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the softly falling snow.
    I am the gentle showers of rain.
    I am the fields of ripening grain.
    I am the morning hush.
    I am the graceful rush
    of beautiful birds in circling flight.
    I am the star shine of the night.
    I am the flowers that bloom.
    I am in a quiet room.
    I am the birds that sing.
    I am in each lovely thing.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there. I did not die.


    ...Mary Frye, Baltimore MD, Circa 1933
