President Reagan said

“We will never forget them,” the President said, “nor the last time we saw them this morning as they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye and ‘slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God.’ ”  

Actually, the President had juxtaposed lines from a World War II-era sonnet, written by a 19-year-old American airman who had volunteered for the Royal Canadian Air Force.

Titled “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 wind-swept 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.

The poet, John Gillespie Magee Jr., KIA Great Britain on Dec. 11, 1941.
