Paul MacCready

by Richard Haxton

He used to play with paper airplanes
He loved to watch them as they’d sail
He saw the future of human travel
Where the others saw small and frail
He rode the wind across the English Channel
It should have brought him riches and fame
Though he was just a few feet above the waves, he went over our heads
But someday, everyone will know his name

Paul MacCready, student of the wind and sun
Paul MacCready, he was here to save everyone
Paul MacCready, when we realize how much he’s done
And we’re ready, he will be
Our favorite son
