High Flight, by John Magee - this poem is a touchstone for pilots everywhere - and one of my favorites: 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 untrespassed sanctity of space,/ Put out my hand and touched the face of God. Flat tablets - made with a coloured surface that is then cut away to reveal the inner colour - leaving the outer colour just visible in places - in these beads, on the sides.
