I have wanted to turn this poem into film ever since I saw a friend's forum signature:

A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds

But my usual flight sim, IL2, did not have World War I scenarios. Now, with the visually stunning flight sim, Rise of Flight, this finally became a possibility.
