Smooth Flights And Soft Landings

So we built it
As high as all of two decks

And a sky! and as wide
As a destination.

So we built it,
Making history, first

To commence commercial operations,
Making history in the transaction.

It was the first
Of nineteen, and twenty

Aluminium hulks, now grounded, say
It won’t be the last.

So we built it
Like we build dreams.

So we built it:
I still don’t see why
We can’t wish
Upon an airplane.


(On the arrival of SIA’s first Airbus A380 in Singapore on 17 October, 2007. My report.)
