THE FLIGHT OF MAN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Lo, on the bare and pathless sky is cast
Last Line: The starward flash of man's supreme desire.


Lo, on the bare and pathless sky is cast
The shape of mighty wings; in spaces bright
The air yields place to man's Titanic flight,
Companion of the cloud and of the blast.

Oh, for the eyes that watched the skylark spring
From earth to heaven, a line of song and fire;
Oh, for such lips of tuneful power, to sing
The starward flash of man's supreme desire.
