Charlie One - Poem by John Stone

Charlie-One, soaring high
Where Earth receding greets the sky
And every one of a thousand miles
Is greeted with a thousand smiles
Where descending to a far-off runway
Is entrance to exotic fun way
Cocktails laced with friendly laughter
With photos posted on Facebook after
As Sun sinks slowly out of sight
Ushering-in heady air of night
And later flights of smiling dreams
No passenger needs here, only yours it seems
Then returning Sun commands the day
And it’s take-off time and chocks away
Homeward bound and mission done
A smile
Well done, Charlie-One
