The Plane Waltz

I saw a plane dance in the sky
‘Gainst fields of corn and air so blue
With clouds she frolicked, turned and dived
Aerobatics so true

She swooped and glid and swirled and swung
Up in the sky so clear she flew
A waltz between man and his plane
A spectacle construe

With grace she seemed to stall then plunge
A pathway in the air she hew
Controlling airspace with such poise
Such skilful perfect view

Newton’s Waltz

I took a lift to the top floor
And there a ballroom spread
A beautiful, outstanding room
With windows laced in lead

And in the air ethereal sounds
Of Waltz from days gone by
The violins in harmony
Playing under starlit sky

And there upon the dance floor
In gowns from ancient day
The ladies with their gentlemen
Dancing the night away

Then in the midst I spotted him
The son of Grantham town
From statue had alighted
With gravity come down

Dispersing all the colours
In a spectrum of delight
With grace and understanding
To glide with step so light

And by the name of Isaac
He waltzed til crow did call
The ghost of Newton dancing
In the ballroom of Guildhall
