Frank E Gibbard Posted July 20, 2009 Share Posted July 20, 2009 (edited) I could not have been more absorbed In activity upon our romantic lunar orb; My mother and I on TV both observed That thrilling first footfall of frail man Falteringly placed on non-terran land, Seen via the state of arc technology On a micro screen by today's standard. Stars and stripes in wavy monochrome And vast expectations were dully raised Like these hazy recollections, so distant. The big picture though was truly grand, I was up late in Britain, my Dad in bed, He'd seen war in his time at first hand; This was not the most dramatic event To him as it was to me then, of all time, That is - until planes flew into buildings.
