Leland S BEARSKIN (VETERAN)

Wyandotte Indian Cemetery Cemetery
Ottawa County,
Oklahoma

MAJOR US Air Force (Ret)
Sept 11,1921 - Oct 5,1993

High Flight:
Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings. Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there, I've chased the shouting wind along and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace Where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

(Note: this poem is by John Gillespie Magee)
