Where No Man Can Touch

La Prima Donna

Thérèse Peltier (1873–1826), first woman to solo an airplane,
September 1908

I flew two hundred meters in Turin—
Not high, not fast, but first.
I flew an aeroplane, no zeppelin.
I flew two hundred meters in Turin.
I’m being called a heroine
In papers sold by Mr. Hearst:
I flew two hundred meters in Turin—
Not high, not fast, but first!
