“We made a promise to the Moon” by Celia Berrell

We made a promise to the moon

 

The year was nineteen-sixty-nine;

the twentieth of July.

Apollo Eleven astronauts

made history on high.

 

Neil Armstrong, then Buzz Aldrin

left footprints in Moon’s dust.

As pioneers and heroes, 

they showed us how to trust.

 

The world embraced their Star-Child dreams.

A plaque was left behind.

It proudly says, “We came in peace

for all    for ALL mankind.”
