on gossamer wings

Okay, here goes. I have only a basic gist of how this famous poem unfolds and may be completely off in my recollection, but I am trying to find a copy of a poem which may or may not have the line in it, ".....on gossimer wings"
In this poem, the author speaks of dancing on clouds and soaring through the sky or through time.
I wish I could be more sure or specific, but this is such a well known poem, I'm sure some one may recognize the cadence of this poem.
Thanks for any help you can give.

This one?

‘High Flight’
By John Gillespie Magee, Jr

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of -- Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
Where never lark, or even eagle flew;
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

Joe Young, here is the poem you were lookin for.

- Old Wives Tales-

- On Gossamer Wings -

When we first touched, my heart flew high
on gossamer wings through a cloudless sky
people told me this love would die
they said it was build upon a lie
They told me my feelings would surely fade
passions would cease & foes would be made
To this i said, "why are you so blind?,
cant you put the past behind?"
True love can change a rivers course
or pierce the strongest vault with ease
true love can turn coal into gold
or tame the tempest to a balmy breeze...

thats all i can recall rt now, will fill up the rest if/when i remember.
