Contraption

Reddening anthracite fills up the furnace with sweltering fire
Boiling the water it builds up the steam with a powerful tension
Pushing the pistons and grinding the gears in a single dimension
Forwardly moves does this massive contraption through pilot’s desire

Picking up speed as the roar of the engine possesses the hot air
Outstretching wings start to lift as propellers awaken their loud turn
Buttons and switches they fill up his console with many he need learn
Gripping the yokes in the cockpit he pulls up against them with great care

Further beneath him the ground drifting lower with fields far and quite still
Flight he achieves after many endeavors and failures for certain
Feeling the joy of his triumph he glides through the clouds like a curtain
Smoke fills the air and is joined with the rain as he treasures his great thrill
