Airplane - Poem by Richard R Collins Jr

At ground level.
I am fine.
still waiting for take off.
there outside
Washing down the plane
Warm water to take away the frost.

Loud voice comes on
Taking to the sky soon.
Seat belts ready in use.
now's the time
engines in a roar
Speed is mounting up.

Off into the wild blue yonder
Destined to a new charted place
where I have never ever been before
