To an Aviator

To an Aviator by Daniel Whitehead Hicky

You who have grown so intimate with stars
And know their silver dripping from your wings,
Swept with the breaking day across the sky,
Known kinship with each meteor that swings-

You who have touched the rainbow’s fragile gold,
carved lyric ways through dawn and dusk and rain
and soared to heights our hearts have only dreamed-
How can you walk earth’s common ways again?
