Poem about flight

Back in the days when TV signed off for the night a TV station would recite a poem while showing images of a an airplane flying. Some of the lines I remember:

Oh I have slipped the surly bonds of earth and danced the sky on laughter silvered wings

I've chased the shouting wind along and done a hundred things you have not dreamed of

Who is the author and is the name of the poem "Flight" ?

Thanks for any help

The author is John Gillespie McGee, Jr., and the poem is "High Flight." It's
further down on this "page" I guess you call it.
