EPISODE 4 TALKING TO THE WORLD FROM PAN AM’S CLIPPERS

I’m Allan Chapman, and thanks for being with me this week.  I am still polishing Mr. Wugidgem And The Faces Of Freedom.  Today I have decided to podcast Episode 4 from my father’s book, Talking To The World From Pan Am’s Clippers, instead of doing Grandma Chapman’s Poetry.  This episode features Pan Am Captain Fatt losing his way on a 1927 flight and from Havana to Miami and crashing.

EPISODE 27 GRANDMA CHAPMAN’S POETRY

Welcome back to my web site, and thanks for being here.  I have finished Mr. Wugidgem And The Faces Of Freedom!  I will spend the next week fine-tuning the manuscript, and then begin podcasting it the following week.  By the way, if you would like to order a print copy of the first Mr. Wugidgem Adventure, you can find it at www.createspace.com/3476205.

Today’s poem from Grandma Chapman’s Poetry is Airmen.  I hope you enjoy it!

EPISODE 27 GRANDMA CHAPMAN\’S POETRY

As I have in the past few episodes, I am including the text of the poem for those of you who would like to follow along.

AIRMEN

BY

FLORENCE CHAPMAN

 

God bless all Airmen, wherever they go,

As they travel far and are never slow,

Going above the clouds so high,

On their many trips, far and nigh.

The crews of the Jets, so big and strong,

Must not err or do things wrong,

Their many cares and great responsibility

Need long training and much ability.

May the weather be fair, so they

Can leave the Airports without delay,

Making the trips safely and returning home

For a rest, before they further roam.

        Written March 4-5, 1969 in Brooklyn, Connecticut          

Thanks for being with me this week for Grandma Chapman’s poem, Airmen.  Please join me again next week for the next episode from my Dad’s book, Talking To The World From Pan Am’s Clippers.  Then…the following week I will resume  Podcasting Mr. Wugidgem And The Faces Of Freedom with Episodes 1 and 2.

A Late February Storm

A LATE FEBRUARY STORM

BY

FLORENCE CHAPMAN

A moist, heavy snow is falling today.

Making of our world a real fairyland

Of white, on the shrubs and trees,

With big flakes that whirl on the wintry breeze.

Now Winter has come to us once more,

With its bluster and cold and snow,

Making the roads again slippery and rough,

So get out your shovels and “do your stuff.”

Those of us who don’t have to go out,

Can stay inside all cozy and nice,

Watching the storm, as it blows around,

And feeding the birds, who now abound.

Written on February 24, 1969 in Brooklyn, Connecticut
