Description

High Flight' is a poem by John Gillespie Magee Jr. an American who
joined the Canadian Royal Air Force in 1940 to be of service in World
War 11. During further training in the UK he wrote "High Flight" at age
19, jotting it on the back of a letter to his parents, 9/41, but on
12/11/41 he was tragically killed in a mid-air collision with another
student. This poem is the official poem of the Royal Air Force. John's
beautiful and spiritual words inspired my composition.
