On my way home today I passed an airfield where a glider was being winched into the air. This reminded me of the one time I had the opportunity to experience a flight in a glider. I recall the marvellous feeling of 'floating' in an eerie silence and felt moved to write these words:

Free Spirit

Flying free in a cloudless sky
Gently lifting my spirits high
Flying free just like a bird
Not a single sound is heard
Flying free and soaring still
Softest breeze gives me a thrill
Flying free - wind in my hair
Havenít got a single care
Flying free and flying wild
Laughing like a little child
Flying free I want to be
As free as this eternally
