 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 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." 
Gillespie Magee ( John Gillespie Magee; An Anglo-American aviator and poet. Magee served in the Royal Canadian Air Force, which he joined before the United States entered the war; he died in a mid-air collision over Lincolnshire in 1941. )
KIA 11 December 1941
 
  A poem originally written by J Gillespie Magee is used as a unique tribute in this sampler design for space flight enthusiasts! You'll work on a light blue 14 count Aida in presorted  cotton flosses to create this poem which commemorates the fatal Challenger flight.
