Apollo

A child was I that Space Odyssey day
  When men walked the bright celestial rock:
In Sea of Tranquility my eyes may
  Have seen futurama and future shock!
New age Columbus kings of starry realm
  In ships on alien frontiers stranded:
New worlds beyond and Earth men at the helm
  Till "three...two...one! The Eagle has landed".
Mission to scout astral planes in deep space
  Led Lunar Module on orbiting stay,
Leaving flag and footprint in human trace
  On entry splashdown out of Milky Way.
Your Saturn rockets rode the sonic boom
To the stars and the dark side of the moon.



                     ------------

Apollo 11 - 20th July 1969:
I remember it well.
I was 8 years old.


May 1992
