MEMORIES (2)

FLIGHT

wind screaming through the struts
as she dives, a wild thing
buffeted in icy clouds

or lumbering above the hills
an old work-horse
giving her all

the throaty roar
of those Merlin engines

and later, the different scream
of jets across the endless sky

and the men
and women
who loved them
