The Birth of Aviation


It began with Orville and Wilbur Wright
Who had a vision of man in flight
They reasoned that if a bird can fly
What about man – why can't I

So work was started with a simple plan
That soon would lead to the flight of man
To see God's world from a view up above
Their work became a real labor of love

They both worked diligently day and night
To achieve their goal of man in flight
Eventually their dream came to fruition
And ushered in the age of space exploration

It led to much greater knowledge, and soon
Man even walked on the face of the moon
The Wright Brothers' vision has stretched beyond the stars
And now man is looking at walking on Mars

Due to the dreams of these flight pioneers
Who had a vision beyond their years
Man has been where none had trod
And 'played' in the veritable backyard of God

    Hi long lost (very busy) friend! So Bob put his comments about this poem and mine are similar...Dayton, OHIO the birthplace of aviation...the entire bicycle shop and model of the Wright Flyer is in my hometown...I am so proud of our heritage. Will u be reading this at your Naval reunion in the fall? It is spot on, Curtis! Great historical "WRIGHT!" ha. Always wondering how you and Ruth are doing these days. Gwendolen :)
