Emalyn Hall: Why I Want to Fly

When Emalyn is not riding her horse, or hanging out at the Arlington Airport taking flights, she's busy making people smile. Emalyn is officially our youngest "Why I want to Fly" essay contestant. Oh wait... she wrote a poem. And what an incredible poem it is!

When I fly my spirits soar
Then I ask, may I fly some more
Flying is what I love
It makes me feel so free like a dove
Seeing the world from high above
If I could fly, whenever
Would I be on the ground, never!
Emalyn Hall

Enjoy the Journey!

P.S. One more little pilot is still working his way down the runway. Taking flight soon.

    1. It is beautiful. Thanks for your comment Heather!

  2. Horses and airplanes sounds like a girl's perfect life to me. Wonderful poem, Emalyn!
