Listeners comments:

Just listened to Amelia Earhart, Soft Silver Wings.....I love it. It's funny what you said about not having to do anything but listen. The music was so atmospheric; all I COULD do was listen....Beautiful - Julia Chapman, Bristol UK

Mike, if she were here your tribute would be painted on her left wing; her right wing would have inscribed the names of Nobel peace prize winners - Clarice, Grand Rapids, MI

The lyrics - 
Amelia Earhart, soft silver wings
by mike marcellino

Amelia Earhart,
Love your picture
in flight.
Love your goggles,
love your lips.
Love how you circled the world,
single handed.

Like that leather
air cap.
You’re a goddess, a woman,
soft white,
ahead of your time,
such afterglow
in shinning armor.

Meet me on a northern coast,
not far from the equator,
above the island
where they made King Kong.

Your Atlantis, risen
in my South China Sea.

Oh, your last flight.
Oh your last flight.
What a night.
Looking at your picture
in my book,
soft silver
soft silver

Your lips, painted colors
light, pretty pink.
Those eyes,
Your nails, natural,
Taking you with me.
Soft silver
soft silver

Courage is the price that Life extracts for granting peace.
The soul that knows it not, knows no release.
From little things.
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear.
Not mountain heights where bitter joy can hear
The sound of wings.
How can life grant us boon of living, compensate
For dull grey ugliness and pregnant hate
Unless we dare
The soul’s dominion? Each time we make a choice, we pay
With courage to behold the restless day,
And count it fair. 
- Amelia Earhart, 1927

You made the crossing
not alone.
Meet you over the Atlantic.
Soft silver,
soft silver,
