Three Suns in an Ochre Sky







In the year thirty, thirty three

At Gliese six-six-seven Cee

We monitored our landing thrust

then touched down gently in the dust.

It wasn't until the second day

That I could quietly slip away.



Laboriously I climbed a hill

And almost choking on the thrill

I turned my disbelieving eyes

Up to the waiting, ochre skies

And saw the dream that drove a rhyme

So gently crafted at a time

When good men feared we'd never live

Instead, unable to forgive

That endless wars would terminate

In wiping Man clean off the slate.



A thousand years have passed since then

And all he asked us fellow men

Was to recite some simple verse

In honor to the Universe.



"If ever from a rocky hill

Three suns, amazingly, instill

A sense of peace, and quiet thought

A value found, that was long sought



Then know for sure that no Divide

Can stop me smiling by your side".
