"...like Icarus ascending on beautiful foolish arms..." Happy 115th Birthday to Amelia Earhart

I should try to avoid petty political remarks about the fact that we'll probably find Ms Earhart before we're treated to a view of #MittsMissingReturns.
When I saw Amelia Earhart's picture in today's Google Doodle, I immediately got this brilliant Joni Mitchell song stuck in my head. It will be there for days.

"A ghost of aviation    /      

She was swallowed by the sky    /         
Or by the sea, like me she had a dream to fly    /          
Like Icarus ascending     /     
On beautiful foolish arms    /     
Amelia, it was just a false alarm"
