Classic Planes, Shine On

Classic Planes, Shine On

A Poem by Eric Cox

Cutting through the sky classic planes shining in beauty
cool designs soar in the air in sculptured majesty
World War 1 brought the rise of biplane fighters I love
such unique planes blazed over battlefields high above
dogfights erupted with machine guns firing bursts of lead
graceful and cool multi-winged death birds soaring overhead
their beauty remains, still sailing upon the wind, of the sky
golden works of art, frozen in film, to eternally fly
World War 2 brought the rise of monoplane aircraft I love
such cool planes blazed over battle ravaged lands high above
sleek fighters and massive bombers built with skill and touched by art
though machines of death their forms hold such beauty and touch my heart
Corsairs, Mustangs, countless breeds of classic planes I can't help but love
sleek, graceful and cool lightning death birds, keep soaring high above
your beauty remains, still sailing upon the wind, of the sky
golden works of art, frozen in film, to eternally fly
Cutting through the sky classic planes keep shining in beauty
cool designs soaring in the air in sculptured majesty.

I like the old military equipment. I like the old stories too. Those men who fought in the sky were true hero's. I enjoy the airplanes shows. Take the people back to time when the sky was a place to discover. Thank you for the excellent poem.

A million points for screaming a classic metal melody in my head. That is where the mind of this reader went.

Awesome

Flying still fascinates me... I'll never find it commonplace. Your words bring about the images of planes soaring and moving, living in the air. Art come to life like birds. A wonder still, and I know I'll be looking up once I get out of this office!
