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.”
